Spectrum Health Expanding Specialty Care Along the Lakeshore

New location will provide services from a variety of specialists in the areas of cardiovascular medicine, neurology and pulmonology

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., March 24, 2022 – Spectrum Health has opened the newly renovated North Muskegon Specialty Care building at 1845 Holton Rd. to provide care from a variety of medical specialists.

The North Muskegon Specialty Care facility gives patients access to quality care from providers they know and trust. Services include cardiovascular medicine, referrals for cardiothoracic surgery, structural heart and valve center, vascular and vein care, pulmonology and neurology.

Designed to provide patients with expert, coordinated care, this newly renovated facility allows patients in the Muskegon area to avoid traveling from location to location for additional health services.

“Each patient who is referred to our team receives expert opinions from clinicians who have subspecialized extensively in their field,” said Spectrum Health cardiologist Michael Dickinson, MD. “Our state-of-the-art facilities allow us to provide lifesaving care for patients with even the most complex conditions. The goal is that 80% of care will take place locally with patients only needing to travel for major interventions.”

The medical specialties currently offered in the Spectrum Health Integrated Care Campus (ICC) at 2009 Holton Rd. in North Muskegon will move into the specialty building, making the ICC primary care focused.

Cardiovascular medicine will provide clinical and interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, advanced heart failure care along with cardiac imaging and monitors including echocardiograms, stress echocardiograms, treadmill stress and patch monitors. Nuclear cardiology services will be offered in autumn 2022.

The structural heart and valve center will provide services including TAVR, TMVR and MitraClips and will serve congenital conditions.

Vascular care will include services for abdominal aortic aneurysm, arteriovenous fistula creation and management, carotid artery disease, embolism/thrombus, mesenteric artery disease, peripheral artery disease, renal arterial disease, thoracoabdominal aneurysm, vascular ultrasound imaging and free vascular screenings.

Vein care services will include services for varicose and spider veins, venous disease management, vein ultrasound imaging and free venous screenings.

Spectrum Health pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine will bring expertise in advanced lung disease, including interstitial lung disease, pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary hypertension and pre-transplant evaluation. Pulmonary function testing will be offered on-site with specialized imaging and laboratory services close at hand.

Spectrum Health neurology’s relocation from the Spectrum Health ICC will continue to offer neurological evaluations and care for a variety of neurological conditions and continue to provide electromyograms (EMGs). Rebecca Bond, DO, who has been providing neurological care for the Muskegon area for more than two years, will be joined by Anne Gembrowski, NP, on the neurology team this summer.
