West Michigan Regional Medical Consortium (WMRMC) is the new name for Muskegon County Medical Control Authority.  The name was changed to reflect the regional mission of the consortium and the cooperative work that the agency oversees.  WMRMC is a 501c3 non-profit corporation that serves as the fiduciary for Region 6 and Region 7 (see the links below).  WMRMC is still the Medical Control Authority for Muskegon County.  Our offices have not changed and contact information is available on this site under the Contact Us section.  Our website is currently undergoing changes to reflect our new name.  New content will be added periodically.
