LAKEVIEW — Joyce Wright lives across the street from what everyone in rural Lakeview simply called Kelsey Hospital.

The 92-year-old has lived in the Montcalm County village of about 1,000 since she was 18. A village about an hour northeast of Grand Rapids that for more than a century has had its own hospital.

The two-story building, which Wright can see from her front window, was the place where she, too, expected she would spend her last days, in the heart of the 2.1-square-mile village.
