Part of a lengthy release from MyMichigan Health Monday addresses the confusion with the “Complete Health Project” proposed on the north side of the City of Clare.
As part of their recent announcement that the Medical Center will be completely renovated and expanded at their present site in downtown Clare, they wanted to answer some of the questions recently raised in the community.
“It’s important to also acknowledge …that we have received many questions and are aware that the Complete Health Park project has, at times been confused with our own plans for the future of our Medical Center.” Said Marita Hattem-Schiffman, president of MyMichigan Medical Centers in Clare, Alma and Mt. Pleasant “We want to reiterate to our community that we are not involved or associated with Complete Health Park in any way. Our efforts are our own and that is to provide the excellent care our communities deserve today, tomorrow and in the future. The opportunity to announce our plans to the public today is a great milestone in our history here and we are ready to set the next steps into motion so that we can begin this next chapter of serving our community.”
Named a Top Rural Hospital in 2021, the 49-licensed bed Medical Center in Clare has more than 300 employees, volunteers, physicians and other personnel. It offers a full range of services in specialty area including diabetes, emergency care, adult trauma, heart and vascular services, hyperbaric oxygen, infusion services, neurosciences, occupational health, ophthalmology, orthopedics, primary care, pulmonology, rehab services, sleep disorders, spine and pain, surgery, women’s’ health and wound treatment.
“This is an exciting time for our community and our entire region,” said Hattem-Schiffman. “The future is bright and MyMichigan is leading the way to a healthier community for every9one to enjoy for many, many years to come.”
