On Friday July 18th, 2014 a notice was posted to the front doors of the Wright & Filippis office on Chisholm Street that they had closed their offices in Alpena and that patients or caretakers needed to contact their office in Tawas.
Patients were not given a great deal of notice that changes were taking place for this much needed business in the area.
In hopes of clearing up the confusion, here is what happened. Wright & Filippis kept the office doors open but only for respiratory care. Not for the line of home health aides that so many were used to getting from the business.
Recently Wright & Filippis Respiratory Care did indeed close the doors for the last time at the location on Chisholm Street. They have moved their operations to the former Alpena Saving Bank/PNC Bank location on Ripley Blvd.
The building has undergone renovations to accommodate Wright & Filippis in the new space.
