Cassopolis Family Clinic Network has recently acquired 122 Grant Street to create the Niles Community Heath Center — Dental. The focus of the new clinic will be serving people who are uninsured or on Medicaid. A recent community needs assessment found that there are between 4,000 and 5,000 people in the Niles zip code area who have Medicaid or are uninsured and can’t find a dentist who will accept Medicaid. The Cassopolis Family Clinic Network is committed to taking care of people in the Niles area by providing dental access to patients who typically can’t find a dentist because of the type of coverage they have.

The building will receive a new entrance, remodeled interior, and up to date technology to serve up to 12 dental patients in the Niles community and is expected to create up to 21 new jobs. The dental clinic is expected to be open by September 1, 2016.
