Rep. Phil Green this week attended a groundbreaking ceremony for a new state-of-the-art health care facility in Caro.
The 42,000 square foot building will be built and operated by Putman Developing. McLaren Caro Region will lease about 20,000 square feet to offer primary care, specialty care, medical imaging and laboratory services.
Other services offered in the building are expected to include urology, a chiropractic clinic and physical therapy.
“This project will improve health care access in the Thumb and is expected to provide more than 100 jobs,” said Green, of Millington. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for our community to become healthier – both medically and economically.”
Green noted the new project will build on the momentum started with the ongoing redevelopment of the Caro Center, a psychiatric hospital run by the state of Michigan. Green successfully fought for the state facility to be preserved and renovated.
“Good things are happening in our community and it bodes well for the future,” Green said.
Rep. Green talks about the challenges facing Michigan agriculture during COVID, saying transportation issues and diminished markets have caused complications for the industry, but adding there is also good news about improved processing opportunities in the state.
State Rep. Phil Green, of Millington, is demanding a federal investigation into Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s controversial COVID-19 nursing home policies that have put Michigan’s long-term care residents and staff in danger.
