Construction of a new health clinic in Eckerman, which will be operated by Helen Newberry Joy Hospital, is underway.

The clinic is located on M-28 east of Newberry near the intersection of M-123.  The Eckerman Health Clinic is expected to open in the spring, and will be staffed by a dedicated physician and skilled nursing staff, offering the convenience of a family health care clinic to the community and visitors of the area.

The hospital announced the new clinic on Monday, November 1.

“This new clinic is very exciting for all of us,” said Hunter Nostrant, CEO of Helen Newberry Joy Hospital.  “We are experiencing tremendous growth as a hospital, and we are eager to offer the services that our outstanding team provides in more convenient locations.”

Helen Newberry Joy Hospital is also currently constructing a new family clinic in Curtis, replacing the original building for the Manistique Lakes Family Clinic.
