The Upper Great Lakes Family Health Center has officially opened its new clinic in Calumet.
The new clinic opened shortly after the center received federal funding for opening a new site in northern Houghton County as well as Keweenaw County.
The clinic offers comprehensive primary care to patients by two physicians. The clinic also offers its services to all insured and uninsured.
Health center officials say opening a site in the area was of high importance after survey analyses concluded the area was in "high need" of healthcare.
â??There's probably a lot of people that will benefit from this, not having to travel all the way to Houghton or Hancock for an exam, and I think that it will benefit the community itself,â?? said certified physician assistant, Guy Pellegrini.
The office is located in Calumet's Mine Street Station.
