Cassopolis, MI, August 6, 2019 – Cassopolis Family Clinic Network (CFCN) was honored to host visits to Cassopolis Family Clinic (CFC) by State Senator Kim LaSata and State Representative(s) Brad Paquette and Aaron Miller on Monday, August 6th in honor of National Health Center Week. It was Sen. LaSata’s and Rep. Paquette’s first visit to the Community Health Center. Their visits included a tour of the health center, during which they met with members of the CFCN Board of Directors, CEO Mary Geegan Middleton, and the administrative team to discuss of the importance of the Community Health Center program and affordable healthcare access for the residents of Cass and southeast Berrien Counties. “It was fantastic to tour the Cassopolis Family Clinic facility and learn more about the critical role they play in fulfilling the healthcare needs of our friends and neighbors. It warms my heart to see the great work they are doing in southwest Michigan,” said Rep. Paquette.
