After Hours Walk-in or Urgent Care Services

Dear Sault Tribe Members,

It is important to your Sault Tribal board of Directors and to your Healthcare team that you have access to medical care and advice even when our Health Centers are closed.  Because of this, the Health Program has established contracts with local walk-in or urgent care clinics across the Eastern Upper Peninsula to provide after hours and weekend/holiday access to urgent care services.  Additionally, we have implemented an after-hours telephone nursing service for patients to use when our clinics are closed.  Patients are now able to talk directly to a registered nurse to receive advice and direction on the care they need when our clinics are closed.  We are sending this letter to all Tribal households in our service area (Chippewa, Mackinac, Luce, Alger, Schoolcraft, Delta, and Marquette counties) to explain how to access or obtain these new health services.  Please call your local Tribal Health Center if you have any questions.

We wish you all Health for a Lifetime!           

Bonnie Culfa, RN, MSN Health Division Director
