Spectrum Health closed all walk-in clinics in West Michigan until further notice.

The health provider recently announced it is temporarily closing all walk-in clinics to halt the spread of COVID-19 and is encouraging people to connect virtually with a provider.

All primary care and most specialty care medical teams can see patients through a virtual visit.

Spectrum Health offers alternatives for accessing health care for non-life-threatening emergencies. People experiencing emergencies should call 911 immediately.

For needs requiring a face-to-face visit, there are locations available and open to patients, including urgent care sites and labs. Care options are available to all patients. 

Spectrum Health’s phone and virtual screening options also can help those who have symptoms and may be concerned they have COVID-19. The purpose is to prevent the spread of illness by enabling people to seek the information they need from their homes.

Spectrum Health advises people to take the following steps from their home. A screening is not a test.

  • Visit spectrumhealth.org/covid19 to stay informed and review free screening options.
  • People in the state of Michigan and experiencing symptoms can schedule a screening by calling Spectrum Health’s hotline at (833) 559-0659 or by using Spectrum Health’s virtual chat found on spectrumhealth.org/covid19.
  • Spectrum Health providers will determine if a person needs further evaluation and, if so, provide instructions for specimen collection.
