War Memorial Hospital in Sault Ste. Marie has signed an agreement with MidMichigan Health.

MidMichigan Health is a non-profit health system affiliated with the University of Michigan. By signing the agreement, War Memorial Hospital would add their 900 employees to the health system’s total staff of about 88-hundred. It would also expand MidMichigan Health's coverage area into the Upper Peninsula.

In a written release, the president and CEO of War Memorial Hospital David Jahn said he’s “pleased” by the agreement, saying it will help the hospital grow and offer more services to patients.

The release said the agreement will take effect early next year.
