Renovation Projects Creates Change At Portage Health

The Portage Health-University Center will be closed this Friday as part of the clinic’s $4.3 million renovation.


Patients are being asked to either visit Portage Health Express Care in Houghton or Portage Health’s main campus in Hancock if they need to be seen that day.


The clinic will reopen the following Monday for regular business hours in the newly constructed space.


The new space features a more spacious and comfortable registration area and waiting room, state-of-the-art patient care areas and a larger revamped pharmacy.


All of these new areas will be open on Monday—one week from today—when phase 2 of the renovation begins.  Phase 2 includes renovating the current clinic, which was built in 2000.


The entire complex is expected to be open this August.
