The NMHSI Difference

Here’s how Northwest Michigan Health Services, Inc. is different from an ordinary doctor’s office:

  • We are a federally qualified community health center – where all are welcome, regardless of insurance status or another limitation.
  • We integrate your care – dental, medical and behavioral health care all work together to help you be as healthy as possible.
  • We are a patient-centered wellness home, where you are at the center of your care and your needs are the most important.
  • We are a non-profit health center with a governing board that is made up of our patients – people just like you.
  • Our most important difference is our staff – everyone at Northwest Michigan Health Services comes to work wanting to improve the health of our community, one patient at a time.

A message from our CEO:

We at NMHSI want to assure our patients and the public that we are here for you. We are responding to rapidly-evolving recommendations regarding COVID-19 to assure the safety of our healthcare staff and community. We remain open and available to serve medical, dental, and behavioral health patients. We are pre-screening patients who present with fevers and cough, and triaging them out of our clinics for the most appropriate testing and follow-up. As always our medical, dental, and behavioral health staff are available to our patients in our clinics, through telemedicine and by phone at (231) 947-0351.

NMHSI is doing curbside COVID testing at the Traverse City Clinic, 10767 E. Traverse Hwy., at our Benzonia Clinic at 6051 Frankfort Hwy, and at the Shelby Clinic at 119 S. State Street.
