About Us

The Grand Traverse Pavilions has a history of care that spans more than a century. Today, the Pavilions serves as a community resource and a continuum of care for our region's aging population. The Cottages of Grand Traverse Pavilions offer services and amenities that enhance the quality of life of older adults. 

With one in three individuals in our service area now over the age of 60, services directed to this demographic have never been more needed or important. Grand Traverse Medical Care provides 24-hour skilled nursing care as well as a broad range of therapeutic, recreational, and nutritional services to 201 long-term care residents.

The Pavilions is owned by Grand Traverse County and operated by the Grand Traverse County Department of Health and Human Services Board and committed to enhancing the quality of life for aging adults and caregivers. The CEO/Administrator is Rose Coleman.  Home to more than 300 residents and more than 400 employees, the 28-acre campus is rooted in a rich history that dates back to the early 20th Century. The unique architecture emulates the 19th Century buildings on site, intricately balancing state-of-the-art accommodations with modern amenities. Fiscally self-sufficient for over two decades, Grand Traverse Pavilions provided more than $4.5 million last year in benevolent care to members of our community.
