Notice:  Executive Order 2020-174 (previously EO 2020-156) restricts visitation to health care facilities and will remain in effect through September 30, 2020. This of course continues to mean that we must restrict visitors coming into Oakview. We know that this is not easy and we apologize for the inconvenience and heartbreak. We are continuing to look forward to better days.

Automated calls:  Oakview is using an automated communication system. If you change your phone number or want the calls to go to a different number make sure to contact Kathleen at 231-845-5185 ext 228.
