Ribbon Cut at Canal View

Officials showed off the revamped Houghton County Medical Care facility on Saturday.

Now known as Canal View Houghton County, the building has been given a facelift from top to bottom. Highlights include a new dining tower, with a panoramic view of the canal. Rehab facilities have been upgraded. Flooring and wall coverings have been changed to reflect a less “institutional” image.

The facility also includes a classroom for Certified Nursing Assistant training. 58 students from local high schools are currently enrolled.
