Spectrum Health Opens First Retail-based Walk-In Clinic

Located in the New Meijer Hudsonville Store

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., July 9, 2018 – In an effort to improve access to care, Spectrum Health will open its first retail-based walk-in clinic this week.

The clinic will be located within the new Meijer store at 4075 32nd Avenue near I-196 in Hudsonville. The clinic will open to patients with the store opening on Thursday, July 12.

The clinic will see patients who need non-emergent care and will provide summaries back to primary care providers. These services are available to any patient, not just patients affiliated with Spectrum Health. Walk-in clinics treat non-life threatening conditions, such as allergies, bumps and bruises or cold and flu symptoms. Services do not include emergency care, on-site X-rays, stitches or treatment for broken bones.

“We are very excited to offer patients a new way to access our services in a convenient location,” said Tina Freese Decker,  executive vice president and chief operating officer, Spectrum Health. “This is another example of how Spectrum Health and Meijer are working together to make health and wellness part of people’s everyday lives. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to get healthy and stay healthy.

The clinic will be overseen by a physician and staffed by two nurse practitioners. The clinic accepts insurance but will take patients without insurance at a cost of $69 a visit. Hours are from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. It will also be open all holidays except Christmas, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
