The Lac Vieux Desert Tribe hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday to celebrate its new $10 million “state-of-the-art” health center.
Tribal chairman James Williams said the tribe has been “in need” of a new facility for some time now. After much trouble, Williams said the tribe found funding to make the “dream” facility a reality.
“We’ve overcome hurdles this year, and found some private funding and tax credits that we applied for and got. It’s allowing us to meet our dream and our goal,” he said.
Tribal members, health center staff and others came together to celebrate the new facility.
