LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Seven Michigan health care centers will split a federal award of nearly $1.7 million to support construction and facility improvements.

The money will allow the centers to adopt a primary-care set-up using teams of medical professionals to treat all of a patient’s health needs. That model is a focus of the nation’s health care law.

Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell says the funding will be used to provide higher quality services, treat multiple needs of patients at once and increase access to care. She says Michigan residents should have access to quality health care regardless of their ability to pay.

More than $35 million was awarded to 147 health care centers throughout the U.S. The funding will support 21 new construction projects and 126 renovation projects.
