At Orchard Creek we understand that the health care of your loved one is a top priority. In order to meet these expectations, we’re committed to offering the best medical services to our residents. Two of the area’s top physicians, both board certified in Geriatric Medicine, oversee Orchard Creek’s health care services, ensuring that residents receive the care they need, when they need it.
Dr. Mark Jackson is the medical director for our Assisted Living unit and Skilled Nursing and Rehab unit. A graduate of the University of Michigan Medical School, Dr. Jackson has been practicing medicine in Traverse City for more than 20 years. In addition to practicing privately with Partners in Family Practice, Dr. Jackson is affiliated with Munson Medical Center in Traverse City, which has been rated a top 100 hospital for nine years.
The medical director for our Supportive Care unit is Dr. Jay Klein. Dr. Klein not only manages Supportive Care’s health care policies, he also serves as the primary doctor for many of our residents. In addition to his work here at Orchard Creek, Dr. Klein has served the Traverse City community for over 20 years through private practice and through his current affiliation with Munson Medical Center. For the past decade he has focused on geriatric medicine.
Remember when doctors used to make house calls? As a part of the comprehensive health care environment of the Supportive Care unit, Dr. Klein often schedules appointments with residents right in their own suite, eliminating the need for travel outside of the facility.
Dr. Jackson and Dr. Klein also make one-on-one visits in our Skilled Nursing unit, when a resident utilizes either doctor as their primary physician. However, residents are more than welcome to use their own private doctors. Dr. Jackson and Dr. Klein are assisted in providing top quality health care by our 24 hour staffed licensed nursing team.
By having two medical directors on our campus, Orchard Creek stands out from other senior living centers in Michigan. We have teamed up with these accredited doctors so that our residents and their families will feel confident that their health is in good hands. With the combined efforts of Dr. Klein and Dr. Jackson, along with the dedicated efforts of our trained and certified medical staff, Orchard Creek Health Care is truly a “Community of Care.”
