GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Roughly 500 Spectrum Health workers are being relocated to a six-story office building near Van Andel Arena.

According to a Spectrum Health spokesperson, the employees who will occupy the building at 25 Ottawa Ave. are part of the information technology department.

Roughly 200 employees are scheduled to move into the new location in November, with about 300 more coming during the winter, the Spectrum spokesperson said.

Many of the employees are coming from other offices downtown and in Kentwood as well as the Priority Health campus at East Beltline and Leonard Street, Spectrum’s spokesperson said.
