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.
