Mercy Health Physician Partners opened its doors to over 350 members of the North Muskegon community at an open house on December 6. The event offered visitors an opportunity to meet the providers, tour the new facility and enjoy refreshments. This family-friendly event also included balloon animals and face painting for the kids.
The new 30,000-square-foot facility at 2006 Holton Road, on the corner of N. Roberts Road, brings together a number of health care services into one, convenient location, including primary care, Urgent Care, X-ray and Lab Services – with a pharmacy set to open in winter 2019. It also consolidates three Mercy Health Physician Partners primary care offices Bear Creek, Northside and Northshore, bringing together 11 care providers representing Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Wound Care and Primary Care.
“The new facility is designed for patient convenience, bringing several key health care services under one roof,” said Kristen Brown, MD, vice president of Mercy Health Physician Partners Muskegon and Provider Services. “By bringing together three established practices alongside diagnostic and specialty services, our patients can receive care in one, more central location.”
The North Muskegon facility is among Mercy Health West Michigan’s newest outpatient centers. A similar facility recently opened in Hudsonville. Both of these facilities were designed with the patient in mind through feedback contributed from patients and providers. The North Muskegon and Hudsonville facilities were designed by Tower Pinkster, and Triangle Associates, Inc. served as general contractor. The combined cost of these two facilities is approximately $20 million.
