State Representative Peter Pettalia recently visited Thunder Bay Community Health Service’s (TBCHS) Roger City clinic during their celebration of National Health Center Week. He met with TBCHS chief executive officer, Michelle Styma, to tour the site and learn about the many services the Health Center is able to offer community residents as a Federally Qualified Health Center.
Rep. Pettalia was impressed with the quality of the facility and the full array of services Thunder Bay Community Health Services has to offer, including pharmacy, dental, and behavioral health.
“I fully support the valuable work done by Federally Qualified Health Centers. They bring much needed state-of-the-art health care services to our rural communities in northern Michigan,” said Rep. Pettalia.
Styma noted that Thunder Bay Community Health Service is partially funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. “In addition to celebrating Community Health Center week, we are proud to announce that we have been providing health care services to the communities of Northeast Michigan for 30 years. We began our first clinic site in Hillman in 1982 and have continued to expand to the communities of Atlanta, Rogers City, and Onaway. We will continue to strive to provide quality, affordable, comprehensive health care services to our communities,” said Styma.
