Building the Future of Health Care

"I greatly care about northern Michigan, its residents, and our Petoskey Plastics' associates," said Paul Keiswetter, who spent summers here before becoming a permanent resident more than 50 years ago.  

"Having access to world class medical services, alongside the natural beauty of our area, offers retired, resorting, or working individuals a rare opportunity for an exceptional standard of living," said Paul.

Paul and Melissa Keiswetters chose to live and run a business in Petoskey because of the cultural vibrancy, natural environment, and sense of community - qualities they still value today. Through their business, they have been able to contribute economic vitality and employment opportunities to our region. Through their philanthropy and volunteerism, they want to ensure that our area has phenomenal health care. 

"I'm Building the Future of Health Care to offer the citizens of northern Michigan the most advanced opportunity for living a healthy, quality life," said Melissa.
