TAWAS ST JOSEPH HOSPITAL - TAWAS CITY, MI

Submitted by:Ruth Tibbetts, Executive Assistant to the president
Please remove the 989.362.9301 phone number from the website, the number posted is directly to the Administration dept. The hospital main number is 989.362.3411. I have requested this to be changed in the past. It is becoming very disruptive to this office to continue to receive calls that should be directed to patient care areas or service lines within the hospital. Your cooperation in getting this issued resolved ASAP is greatly appreciated.
