Neighborhood Physician’s Offices Expand into Grandville
Metro Health – University of Michigan Health wants patients to receive quality health care when they need it most, where they live. On May 8, Metro Health opened its 17th neighborhood physician office providing another convenient location for the community.
“Our neighborhood physician offices offer patients both choice and access when it comes to primary care,” said Dr. Rakesh Pai, President of the Medical Group and Chief Population Health Officer, Metro Health – University of Michigan Health. “We have a large patient base that call Grandville home, so we felt it was a natural fit to open our next office in their community.”
Metro Health Grandville, like other Metro Health neighborhood outpatient centers, is a model for care that promotes partnerships between individual patients and their personal physician. The practices are recognized for intensified efforts to coordinate patients’ health care through prevention, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up services.
Located at 4285 Parkway Place in Grandville, the office offers both family practice and OB/GYN services. Dr. Rebecca Werner serves as the Site Medical Director, seeing patients alongside Lindsey Marchel, NP. In addition, three OB/GYNs, Dr. Renee Elderkin, Dr. Stephanie Getz and Dr. Sue Hicks, will split their time between Grandville, Metro Health Village and Metro Health Park East.
“We believe the Grandville community will benefit from having primary care and OB/GYN outpatient services located so close to where they live,” said Werner. “We’re looking forward to growing the practice and plan to add two Internal Medicine/Pediatric physicians later this year.”
Metro Health Grandville is open Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Same day appointments are available and walk ins are welcome during regular business hours.
