Open to the community!

In July 2015, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) sponsored an inquiry into the operations of the LRE because of concerns regarding the quality of clinical services in response to concerns expressed by consumers, family members and advocates.

This meeting is being held to provide stakeholders a brief review of the Beacon Report, review the 15 area of MDHHS Concern, review the current status of the Plan of Correction and obtain feedback from the community on the LRE's efforts.
