1940 Anchor Society

The 1940 Anchor Society is an association of individuals deeply interested in MyMichigan Medical Center Alpena and the continued provision of quality health care services in Northeast Michigan. Each member contributes $100 or more annually. Membership contributions have been used to construct a mammography suite, complete with two state-of-the-art mammography machines. In addition, membership contributions funded the construction of a Patient/Family Conference Room located in the Cancer Center. Currently, members of the 1940 Anchor Society contributions are directed toward patient enhancements. If you would like more information, please contact Ann Diamond at or (989) 356-7738.
