• Located in Muskegon Heights, Hackley Community Care Center serves residents of Muskegon County along the shores of Lake Michigan. They provide a complete spectrum of health care services to increase access to care for area residents that promote and support their total health.

Downriver Community Services, Family Health Center of Battle Creek, Hackley Community Care Center, and InterCare Community Health Network are four of Michigan’s 31 Community Health Center organizations which serve nearly 600,000 Michigan residents and operate 160 sites across the state.
