You often hear the word “compassion” in environments like ours. For us, this expression has deep roots. We trace it back in history to the experience of Jesus, where he found a place of renewal and hospitality at the home of his friends, Mary, Martha and Lazarus.
Beacon Hill at Eastgate began as Michigan Christian Home in the 1950s, when members of local Baptist congregations wanted to find a way to extend this same kind of hospitality to serve retiring missionaries, pastors and their spouses.
Today, Beacon Hill at Eastgate has grown to serve over 350 residents and their families of all traditions of faith. The faith-based perspective we were founded upon remains a grounding principal for our commitment to service today. This Christian faith perspective remains as a vital source of our commitment to deliver unsurpassed care to every resident, family member and guest.
