GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — University of Michigan Health’s newest outpatient office is now open in Grand Rapids, bringing more services – including heart and vascular specialists – to the area.

Metro Health Beltline, located at 1310 E. Beltline Ave., replaces a smaller clinic on Cascade Road, a news release said Wednesday.

All the providers from that office are relocating to the East Beltline site and their phone numbers will not change.

The building’s modern design emphasizes a patient-centered concierge atmosphere.

Nurse triage spaces provide convenient access for walk-in patients.

The office is also equipped with technology that allows self-rooming and self-checkout to reduce patient wait time and promote safety.

“As we enter a new world of health care delivery, this office is an example of Metro Health’s commitment to finding new and innovative ways to deliver quality care to our patients,” said Dr. Rakesh Pai, chief population health officer and president of the Medical Group.

At 30,500 square feet, the new office is Metro Health’s largest primary care site.

It has capacity to accommodate up to 20 providers and 55 staff, caring for between 400 and 500 patients a day.

Services include family practice, sports medicine, internal medicine, behavioral health and diabetes education.

Heart and vascular services offered include chest x-rays, electrocardiograms, stress echocardiogram exercise or medication, graded exercise tests and continuous portable telemetry monitoring.

The office is open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, with walk-in visits accepted.
