Metro Health – University of Michigan Health Opens First Doctor’s Office on East Beltline

Metro Health – University of Michigan Health announces the opening of its first physician office on the East Beltline near Knapps Corner, Grand Rapids Township.

Metro Health Grand Rapids Northeast” is the new name of the former Grand Rapids Family Physicians, an independent practice since 1925. The office officially opens for patients November 6 at 1787 Grand Ridge Ct. NE, Suite 101. The office telephone number is 616.252.4540.

The current staff—including physicians, David O. Kutsche, MD; Gregory L. Hazle, MD; and Julie C, Cooper, DNO, NP-C. remain at the practice.

“We are looking forward to joining the Metro Health family, and to providing our patients with greater access to a network of cutting-edge health care, medical research and innovation,” said Dr. Kutsche.

Current procedures and services offered include: adult and pediatric medicine, newborn care, women’s care, sports physicals, fracture care, colposcopy and skin lesion removal. The office serves as a gateway to the range of specialty services offered at Metro Health – University of Michigan Health.

Metro Health Grand Rapids Northeast, like other Metro neighborhood outpatient centers, is recognized as a “patient-centered medical home,” a model for care that promotes partnerships between individual patients and their personal physician. The designated practices are recognized for intensified efforts to coordinate patients’ health care through prevention, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up services.

New features for patients as a result of Metro’s acquisition of the practice include access to their electronic medical records via MyChart; to schedule appointments, request refills of prescriptions and view laboratory and other test results.

The Metro Health Grand Rapids Northeast office is the third physician practice acquired by Metro Health – University of Michigan Health this year. Metro Health Lowell and Metro Health OB/GYN joined the system in 2017.

Mike Faas, Metro Health – University of Michigan Health president and CEO said, “We welcome the team from Grand Rapids Family Physicians to Metro Health, as their nearly a century of dedication to high-quality care aligns with our commitment to personalized care for our patients and families.”
