Family Health Care Welcomes Two New Providers

BALDWIN – Having providers that are compassionate patient advocates is essential to helping Family Health Care (FHC) achieve its mission. That’s why FHC is pleased to announce the additions of Marisa Gariglio, Family Nurse Practitioner, to its Big Rapids Health Center and Alexander Warnsholz, Physician Assistant, to its Baldwin Health Center.

Marisa has worked as a registered nurse and nurse practitioner in rural health care settings over the last 10 years. She completed her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Ferris State University and her Master of Science in Nursing – Family Nurse Practitioner at Oakland University.

“Being at Family Health Care is a great opportunity to meet the needs of patients and the community,” said Marisa. “I look forward to being a part of the future growth of the Big Rapids Health Center while building relationships with coworkers, patients, and the community.”

Alexander completed his Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science at Michigan Technological University and his Master of Health Science in Physician Assistant Studies at South College in Knoxville, TN. Since 2016, Alexander has provided outpatient care as a Physician Assistant to residents in Mason, Manistee, and the surrounding counties.

“I am excited to be part of the patient-centered medical team providing care to encompass all of the community’s needs,” said Alexander. “I feel FHC’s mission and my practice goals align very well. I am delighted to be granted this opportunity to join the team in Baldwin.”

Patients can schedule appointments with Marisa and Alexander for various medical concerns, including annual physicals, sick visits, chronic disease management, minor procedures, and acute care visits. Along with medical services, FHC strives to provide quality, affordable access to behavioral health, dental, pharmacy, laboratory, and radiology services.
