A Brief History of Health Care in Albion

The Albion Health Care Center opened in Stoffer Plaza in 2003 and is now named the “Ralph and Mary Cram Healthcare Center.”

Albion Health Care Alliance manages this building, which houses several health-related organizations.

Dr. Ralph and Mary Cram

We join the Albion community with sorrow on the recent passing of Dr. Ralph Cram on January 31, 2022. Dr. Cram and his wife Mary, who passed away in 2012, were active in many community projects in the Albion area. Mary Cram was her husband’s first nurse when he began his medical practice as a family medicine physician. During his many years of practice, Dr. Cram delivered over 3,000 babies.

Every one of those mothers and “babies” that came up to him on the street, in stores, at concerts or wherever he was in public to say hello or “do you remember me” or “you know, you delivered me/my sister/brother/mother/father/” placed a little smile upon his heart because he treasured being their doctor and having helped them get started in life.

They came to Albion in the 1960s, where they both practiced at Albion Community Hospital, later renamed Trillium Hospital. Dr. Cram was named the 1993 Michigan “Family Physician of the Year” by the Michigan Academy of Family Physicians.

One of the Crams’ favorite projects was the restoration of the Albion Train Depot, which happened in 1985. Recently the Cram family donated additional funds for continued upkeep and improvements to the Albion Train Depot.  Read the story by The Recorder by clicking here.
