POSTPONED: Ribbon-cutting for new Covenant cancer care center in the Thumb to be rescheduled

The ribbon-cutting for the new CRTN Cancer Care Center originally scheduled for Monday, January 16, 2023, is being postponed. Original media invitation went out on 12/20/22.

Huron, Saginaw, Sanilac & Tuscola Counties, MI - Due to unexpected supply chain issues, it has become necessary to delay the opening of the new center a few weeks. We expect that the new 16,260 square foot comprehensive cancer care center will begin services in late winter, and we will reschedule the ribbon-cutting event closer to that time.

When construction is completed, the new center will offer a full range of cancer care for patients including medical oncology, chemotherapy infusion and radiation oncology. All six independent hospitals, Deckerville Community Hospital, Harbor Beach Community Hospital, Hills & Dales Healthcare, Marlette Regional Hospital, Scheurer Health, assisted Covenant HealthCare's efforts to bring this extraordinary service to the Thumb.

A community-wide open house is being planned for spring/summer.
