Essentia Health invites the community to attend an open house to celebrate the new Grand Rapids Clinic and Pharmacy from 5 to 6:30 pm today. The clinic is located 1542 Golf Course Road in Grand Rapids.
The clinic officially opened April 9 after a $14 million expansion. The expansion brings the total number of exam rooms to 25, from the original six, allowing for improved access to care. New specialty services now offer patients access to audiology, podiatry and orthopedics, along with an on-site retail pharmacy.
Staff members were able to choose the names for the hallways at the clinic, and decided to capture the spirit and beauty of the area by naming them Northern Lights, Sunset and Blue Waters. Attendees will have a chance to meet the care teams and check out the new space and equipment on self-guided tours. There will also be a barbecue and music.
Essentia chose MedCraft as its development partner. MedCraft is a national leader in the development, financing and management of ambulatory care and medical office buildings. It purchased the building and land to develop the 25,000-square-foot expansion. Kraus-Anderson served as general contractor and BWBR served as the project’s architect.
