Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital celebrates 80 years, just as Charlotte’s Sesquicentennial year is being recognized in many ways. Milestones inspire us to look around and ask when some of our wonderful assets appeared on the scene and who are the people behind the names we see. For example, the four founders of our community can easily be recalled with a simple walk around the Courthouse Square museum block, reading the four street signs of Cochran, Lawrence, Bostwick, and Harris.

Dr. Meredith Heisey with Mid-Michigan Orthopaedic Institute is bringing a new, less-invasive anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, reconstruction procedure to Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital.
One of the most common knee injuries is an ACL tear. The ACL is one of four major knee ligaments and it is critical for knee stability. An ACL injury is most commonly sports related, especially in sports that involve sudden stops and changes in direction like basketball, soccer or volleyball. A torn ACL that requires surgery can't be repaired, it must be replaced.
