About Us


Originally founded in January 1995, Northpointe is the result of a merger between Dickinson-Iron Community Mental Health and Menominee County Community Mental Health. Northpointe’s development was a positive response to a rapidly changing healthcare environment. In 2014, Northpointe joined the 4 other community mental health agencies in Michigan's Upper Peninsula to form a regional entity (Region 1) under NorthCare's leadership as the Prepaid Inpatient Health Plan administrator. As to be expected in an era of increasing mergers, acquisitions, and market-driven changes, our development continues. Northpointe’s strategic plan drives the ongoing change and growth process.
