For more than 80 years we’ve been a healthcare focal point in Saginaw and surrounding communities. HealthSource Saginaw has changed and transformed to meet the needs of those we serve – from tuberculosis patients in the 1930s…to those seeking long-term care or recovery from surgery, debilitating illness or injury, chemical dependency, or mental health issues today.
We are a rehabilitation/recovery hospital. There is no one like us in the region offering the scope of services from short-term care to a lifetime of care.
Mission, Vision, Values
Outstanding people working together to improve the physical and emotional health of the lives we touch.
To be recognized as the premier provider and employer in the Great Lakes Bay Region providing innovative rehabilitation, nursing care, and behavioral health services.
HealthSource Saginaw was originally known as Saginaw County Hospital upon its establishment by the County of Saginaw in 1930 as a tuberculosis sanatorium at 3340 Hospital in Saginaw Township.
In 1971, the hospital changed its name from Saginaw County Hospital to Saginaw Community Hospital. In 1991, the hospital incorporated and became a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.
In 1994, the hospital was renamed HealthSource Saginaw, Inc.
In August 2004, Saginaw County voters approved a 25-year millage to fund a $35 million project to replace the facility’s aging infrastructure. After four years of construction, the expansion project was completed in 2010.
Although HealthSource Saginaw has been a separate entity from Saginaw County since 1991, we deeply appreciate the continued support that Saginaw County residents provide through the millage for our building.
Today, the need for services in Behavioral Medicine, Medical Rehabilitation, and Long-Term Care has never been greater, and HealthSource operates independently through payments from patients and insurance companies.

All patient rooms have accessible private bathrooms with showers, flat screen TVs, and pleasant views to the landscaped grounds. Our Home Room — donated by Field Neurosciences Institute — is an apartment-style suite patients and families can use to practice the skills required to return to independent living prior to discharge from their rehabilitation program. The Home Room features a living room, bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. We encourage family members to spend the night to see firsthand how the transition home will be, while still having experienced staff available to troubleshoot any issues that may arise.
