Services are provided to groups listed under the Sault Tribe Eligibility Policy which includes Sault Tribe members and families and tribal employees from newborns through the elderly who reside in and around the Escanaba area.

We encourage patients to have a primary care provider who is available at the nearest clinic.  This provider can help them prevent disease, manage health problems and maintain health.  The CHN can help patients recognize health problems and assist them in obtaining needed care.  We encourage our patients who are on medications to be seen at as often as recommended by their primary care provider.  The CHT & CHN provide support for elders living at home to remain independent and assist in coordinating resources to stay at home for as long as possible.

We encourage patients to call the Escanaba Community Health Center at 906-786-2636 for appointments or service requests.   The CHT & CHN can help coordinate future medical appointments at one of the four main Tribal Health Clinics.  After hours, please call your primary health clinic to obtain assistance in seeking after-hours medical care.
