and cost-effective health care services to Upper
Peninsula employers and residents.
MARQUETTE- On Friday, December 4th at 8:30 a.m. Upper Peninsula Health Plan (UPHP) will break ground on their new headquarters which will be located at Liberty Way. In August, UPHP inked a contract with the Veridea Group to join their development that already contains the completed mBank building and the new Staybridge Hotel, which is expected to be finished in July. UPHP will be the sole tenant of the new 28,000 square foot building, with two levels of underground parking, located near the intersection of Washington Street and Lincoln Avenue.
Leading the groundbreaking is Dennis Smith, President and CEO of Upper Peninsula Health Plan. Joining Smith for the ribbon cutting will be James Bogan, Market President for UP Health System, as well as other state and local officials to celebrate the start of construction on the new building.
The completion date for this project is scheduled for August 2016.
Upper Peninsula Health Plan currently has 30,000 Medicaid and MIChild members and its network exceeds 900 providers.
The Upper Peninsula Health Plan will be the health care benefit administrator of choice by delivering high-quality, innovative, and cost-effective health care services to Upper Peninsula employers and residents while maintaining the integrity of our regional health care system.
