HISTORY OF MARTHA T. BERRY MEDICAL CARE FACILITY
Dr. Henry G. Berry and the people of our community have played a major role in helping Macomb County’s own Martha T. Berry Medical Care Facility evolve from a humble, 100-bed hospital to a beautifully renovated,state-of-the-art, 217-bed skilled nursing facility. Martha T. Berry is proud to be considered a “safety net” within the community because of the care provided to vulnerable residents who might not otherwise be able to afford skilled nursing services. The majority of funding the facility receives for patient care comes directly from Medicaid.
