About MidMichigan Community Health Services

MidMichigan Community Health Services is a federally-qualified rural community health center (FQHC) based in Houghton Lake, Michigan. We provide primary and specialty health care for all, with a particular emphasis on access for the underserved.

Our organization was founded by concerned residents in the early 1970s to address the severe shortage of primary care in our area. We are still run by a local volunteer board of directors, helping to ensure that our services meet the community's needs.

We focus on preventive health care, health education, counseling and health promotion. Our mission is to provide you medical care that is:

  • High Quality
  • Community-driven
  • Patient-focused
  • Easy for all to access

We believe that quality health care is a right and should be provided to all people regardless of age, sex, race or financial status. We treat patients and visitors with respect, dignity and confidentiality. We also emphasize personalized, family-oriented care and will coordinate medical services to help you receive timely, consistent followup for all your health care needs, including physical, mental and emotional needs.

Our facilities include:

We also partner with schools in Houghton Lake and Roscommon, Michigan to provide school-based health centers.

MCHS is affiliated with MidMichigan Health, and is a member of both the Michigan Primary Care Association (MPCA) and the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC).
