Dr. Hawkins Retires!

After 33 years as a family physician in St. Ignace, Carl Hawkins, M.D. has recently retired from his full-time practice. Daily interaction with his patients is what Dr. Hawkins will miss the most, in addition to the relationships he has built with those patients, his staff, and co-workers. He will continue to serve as medical examiner for Mackinac and Emmet counties, and will stay involved with Mackinac Straits, filling in for providers on vacation. Dr. Hawkins is pictured with his wife Grace after receiving a plaque from the medical staff recognizing his years of service.

Retail Pharmacy

Our retail pharmacy is open seven days a week at Mackinac Straits Hospital in St. Ignace! Straits Area Pharmacy is located on the first floor near the Emergency entrance. It is open Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Weekends & Holidays, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

The 1,675-square foot pharmacy offers prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, vitamins and other health-related supplies such as bandages, skin lotions, and more. Four parking spaces have been constructed in front of the pharmacy area next to the sidewalk leading to the exterior pharmacy door. Recent Community Health Needs Assessments identified a need for more retail pharmacy services in the area. MSHS worked with Munson Healthcare consultants on the project. For more information, call (906) 643-7298.
