Metro Health – University of Michigan Health's newest outpatient office is bringing more services and easier access to care to families in East Grand Rapids, Cascade and the surrounding areas.
Metro Health Beltline, at 1310 E. Beltline Ave. SE, just north of Lake Drive, replaces a smaller clinic on Cascade Road. All the providers from that office are relocating to the East Beltline site, and their phone numbers will not change.
Upon entering the building, you'll immediately notice its modern design and patient-centered concierge atmosphere. Nurse triage spaces provide convenient access for walk-in visits, and the office is equipped with unique self-service technology. You will have the option to self-room and self-checkout to reduce your wait time and promote safety.
"As we enter a new world of healthcare delivery, this office is an example of Metro Health's commitment to finding new and innova¬tive ways to deliver quality care to our patients," says Dr. Rakesh Pai, Chief Population Health Officer and President of the Medical Group.
At 30,500 square feet, this office is now Metro Health's largest primary care site. It has the capacity to accommodate up to 20 providers and 55 staff, caring for between 400 and 500 patients a day.
The office's comprehensive services include family practice, sports medicine, internal medicine, behavioral health, diabetes education, x-ray and laboratory services. Additionally, with adult and pediatric heart and vascular specialists, you have the choice of seeing your cardiologist at the main hospital or the Metro Health Beltline location. Heart and vascular services offered include:
- Chest x-rays
- Electrocardiograms (EKG / ECG)
- Graded exercise tests (GXT)
- Continuous portable telemetry monitoring
"We're all looking forward to maintaining a relationship with our existing patients in this new location, where they will have easy access to a wider range of services," says Dr. Edwin Kornoelje, Metro Health Beltline Site Director. "At the same time, we look forward to adding new patients to the Metro Health family."
The office is open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, with walk-in visits accepted. Call 616.252.1500 or visit Metro Health's website for more information.
