A local health system has opened a new clinic inside a Meijer.
Grand Rapids-based Spectrum Health opened the walk-in clinic this week in the recently renovated Meijer in Wyoming, at 5500 Clyde Park Ave. SW.
Dr. Joel Lopez provides physician oversight of the clinic, which is staffed by nurse practitioners Kory Eastway, Andrea Eastway, Julie Dragt and Erin McCue.
The clinic provides non-emergency care for various conditions, such as cough, cold, ear ache and more, and will provide summaries to primary care providers.
The clinic is open to all and not limited to patients who have a Spectrum Health provider.
It accepts most insurances with the standard insurance co-pay.
For people with a high-deductible plan or no insurance, a walk-in clinic visit is $69, including most basic labs.
Clinic services do not include on-site X-rays, stitches or treatment for broken bones. Patients with these conditions and anything requiring immediate medical attention will be directed to an urgent care center or hospital emergency department.
Patients can reserve a spot online.
Its hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The clinic will also be open on holidays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and closed on Christmas Day.
Spectrum Health’s first in-store clinic opened last year at the Meijer in Hudsonville.
