An hour before treating patients, at the newly-opened IHA Urgent Care facility on Arkona Road, an official grand opening was held with a Ribbon-Cutting ceremony.
 Purple is the corporation’s color of choice; therefore, Matt Ajluni D.O. cut the ceremonial brightly-colored purple ribbon.
Present for the occasion representing the corporation was Mark LePage, M.D and corporate CEO, Cindy Elliott, RN President and COO, Amy Middleton, Marketing Director, Donna Poirier, Program Manager for Urgent Care and After Hours and Lis Boen, IHA Milan Family Internal Medicine Practice Manager.
Milan Area Chamber of Commerce President Carrie Ritchie and other board members, joined by city officials to include Councilwoman and mayor pro tem, Ann Gee, councilwoman, Mary Kerke, City Manager, Jade Smith and councilman and mayor elect, Dominic Hamden were present.
The opening of the Milan facility brings the total of the corporation’s care locations to five.  The Milan Urgent Care is a full-service facility offering extended hours seven days a week including holidays.
They not only offer extended hours but offer patients the ability to “save their spot”.  A saved spot is not a guaranteed appointment, but an option allowing patients to seek care at a convenient time.  The service is available with an easy-to-use online scheduling tool accessible through a link on the IHAcares.com home page.
Adults and pediatric patients receive personalized care from IHA doctors and nurse practitioners.
Donna Poirier, program manager for the center said, “We are excited to serve the Milan community.”
Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 870 E. Arkona Rd., Suite 105.
 For more information call 734-222-4150 or call IHA Call Center Triage Nurses for help at 734-995-2950.
