Governor Granholm has proclaimed the week of August 9-15 as Health Center Week in Michigan. The second week of August each year is dedicated to recognizing the service and contributions of Community, Migrant, Homeless and Public Housing Health Centers in providing access to affordable, high quality, cost-effective health care to medically vulnerable and underserved people in the U.S.
“Celebrating America’s Health Centers: Where ACCESS and QUALITY CARE Begin” is the theme for National Health Center Week 2009. It highlights the record of Health Centers in providing affordable, high quality, cost-effective health care to all people, regardless of ability to pay.
There are 32 Community Health Centers in Michigan. They provide comprehensive, quality, affordable, accessible preventive and primary health care to over half a million Michigan residents at 160 delivery sites.
