Health Delivery, Inc. was awarded a federal new access point expansion grant by the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services. The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) granted the $858,333 award to Health Delivery, Inc. (headquartered in Saginaw) to expand and stabilize the two existing sites in Shiawassee County for comprehensive primary health care including medical, dental and behavioral health services as well as open two new access sites in Huron County.

HDI, in conjunction with many community partners, applied for new access point grant funding in Shiawassee and Huron counties since these communities have a need for more access to affordable primary health care.

“Health Delivery has established an excellent record of providing high quality, reliable and compassionate care over their forty-year history,” it was noted. “We are very thankful to our community partners and federal leaders who have made this commitment. We’re excited to have this opportunity to provide excellent health care to underserved, uninsured and underinsured people in these counties,” said Dr. Coughlin, MD, MPH, FAAFP, Chief Executive Officer/President of Health Delivery, Inc.

HDI is going to be operating from its new facility at 200 Caledonia Drive, just north of Godwin’s Furniture on M-21 between Owosso and Corunna. The grant allows HDI, in conjunction with many community partners, to provide health care for Medicaid, uninsured and underserved individuals.

The services provided are sensitive to the needs of the community, are not based on ability to pay, and are offered without regard to criteria such as race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

HDI is a non-profit FQHC operating in 20 different locations throughout the Great Lakes Bay Region providing health and dental care to everyone regardless of their insurance coverage. HDI receives 13 percent of its funding through the Department of Health and Human Services/Health Resources and Services Administration.
