Fellow Sunrise Rotarian Peter Marinoff tells us what is going on at Frankfort's Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital, where he is the CEO. 
A part of the Munson Healthcare System, Paul Oliver is a community non-profit hospital that opened in 1951. Peter gave us a look at the hospital from national, statewide and northern Michigan perspectives. In 1999 Paul Oliver became the first Critical Access Hospital in the state. Is it also a six-time winner of the Press Ganey award, meaning that it is in the top 5% of participating hospitals for patient satisfaction.
Paul Oliver is also a Michigan Quality Award winner and has been recognized as a five-star facility.  Its programs include not only hospital services, but also such things as before and after-school programs.
Peter fielded numerous questions ranging from why there is not always a doctor on the premises to how the hospital is able to avoid losses at its emergency room. He also talked about how the expansion of Medicaid had helped Michigan hospitals, allowing Paul Oliver and its parent Munson to provide high-quality service at a relatively low cost.
