Local health facility urges patients to use virtual health clinic

ALPENA, Mich.— MidMichigan Health Center is cracking down on face to face visits. The healthcare facility is urging patients to use the Virtual Health Clinic to help slow down the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Virtual Health Clinic offers the option for patients to set up appointments and provides a video visit with a doctor where a physical exam is not required. For many of the MidMichigan locations, facility hours are shorter and some of the clinics and walk in services have closed.

Patients who are needing to be seen in person are asked to wear a cloth mask covering the mouth and the nose upon entering the building. If an individual does not have a mask, they will not be turned away and will receive one at the door.

If you wish to make an appointment online you may call   1–888–591–0500.
