Northern Michigan Health Centers Receiving More than $5 Million in Funding
Eight northern Michigan health centers will receive more than $5 million combined in funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The funding was included in the American Rescue Plan.
“On behalf of our community health centers that are receiving a piece of the $1 billion American Rescue Plan, we are grateful to the Biden-Harris Administration, Senator (Debbie) Stabenow and Senator (Gary) Peters for their support for health center infrastructure funding. The funds will ultimately help our health centers better serve patients, especially in medically underserved communities, through pandemic-related capital projects, renovated facilities and new equipment. The outcome will help advance health equity among Michiganders who continue to receive top-notch primary care services from our health centers,” said Dennis Litos, MHA, FACHE, MPCA Chief Executive Officer.
Funding by Health Center:
East Jordan Family Health Center
Baldwin Family Health Care
Northwest Michigan Health Services, Inc.
Thunder Bay Community Health Service, Incorporated
Alcona Citizens For Health, Inc.
Mid-Michigan Health Services
Upper Great Lakes Family Health Center
Bay Mills Indian Community
“The nurses, doctors and health care providers in these centers serve individuals and families who often fall through the cracks of our health care system. They are on the front lines of this public health crisis and have been challenged like never before. That’s why securing this funding was such a high priority for me. I’m grateful for their heroic work in keeping Michigan families safe,” said Senator Stabenow.
