Spectrum Health is planning on building a new urgent care facility in Big Rapids as part of a $151-million dollar investment in patient care.
“Providing our communities with care that is high-quality and convenient, particularly for outpatient services, is essential to helping people live healthier lives,” said Tina Freese Decker, President & CEO, Spectrum Health. “We are committed to making investments that increase access to affordable health care.”
“We have listened to our community in prioritizing these building projects to improve access to exceptional care. We thank the physicians and community members who have helped develop these plans,” said Darryl Elmouchi, MD, president, Spectrum Health West Michigan.
The 33,000 square foot facility which is expected to open in spring of 2023 will house the Big Rapids Family Medicine clinic, the first Spectrum Health Urgent Care in the area, outpatient rehabilitation, occupational health and other ancillary services, which are currently located in the hospital.
Other projects include the Lakeview Rural Health Clinic which will bring together much-needed outpatient care for the Lakeview community and surrounding area in a convenient location. The 15,800 square foot building will relocate the Lakeview Family Medicine practice, outpatient rehabilitation and walk-in clinic from their current locations and provide space for specialty care services.
