The Newberry Community Health Center located on M-28 south of Newberry provides a variety of community health services for Tribal members and other eligible persons.  The facility will have a rececptionist secretary present during business hours and medication delivery available on Tuesday.

 CHT’s and CHN complete home visits for Tribal members in the surrounding area.  Medications are transported from the Tribal pharmacies to the Newberry Community Health Center when requested and are available for patients residing in the Newberry area on Tuesday only from 9:30 to 3:00.

The center is opened Monday –Friday from 8:00 to 5:00 and closed at lunch and Holidays/weekends.

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 Newberry 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 Newberry Community Health Center at 906-293-8181 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.

We invite you to watch the Sault Tribe Health Division video tour of our eight centers. Our informative video will help ou learn about the many services we provide to our members. We thank you for taking your time to tour our great facilities.
