A Few Words

About Albion Healthcare Alliance

Albion Healthcare Alliance works to reduce barriers to accessing clinical and community preventive services, supports community health workers and patient advocacy, and brings together community representatives to see that barriers are being addressed.

​We do this by offering navigation services, operating the Ralph and Mary Cram Medical Center, and helping with COVID-19 prevention with awareness, testing and micro-vaccine clinics.

The Albion Health Care Alliance began as the Greater Albion Alliance Health Care Task Force in 2002 to respond to the closure of Trillium Hospital.

The Albion Health Care Center opened in Stoffer Plaza in 2003 and is now named the “Ralph and Mary Cram Healthcare Center.”

Albion Healthcare Alliance manages this building, which houses several health-related organizations.

We Are Always

Glad to Help

During difficult times, the community of Albion has always found ways to turn challenges into achievements.

Community partners have found data and resources to be used in new ways as building blocks for health and education.
