UM Health-West celebrates opening of new $10.4 million Wayland Health Center

University of Michigan Health-West marked the grand opening of its new Wayland Health Center Tuesday with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting. The event, attended by community leaders and health system representatives, highlighted the expansion and enhanced services provided at the new $10.4 million facility.

Spanning 17,300 square feet, the new health center at 1113 West Superior St. is 75 percent larger than the former location, addressing the health needs of Wayland’s growing population.

“Our new center is a direct response to the community’s feedback,” said Dr. Ronald Grifka, president of UM Health-West. “We are here today because we heard the Wayland community’s call for greater access to comprehensive healthcare services right in their neighborhood.”

The facility is staffed by three primary care physicians and three advanced practice providers, with additional capacity to incorporate three to four more healthcare professionals. This expansion ensures a broad spectrum of healthcare services, including rotating monthly specialties like cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, psychiatry, pulmonology, sleep medicine and women’s health (obstetrics and gynecology) to meet diverse patient needs.

“Our approach has always been patient-centric, delivering top-notch primary and specialty care where it’s most convenient for our patients,” said Dr. Gregory Neagos, interim director of University of Michigan Health Partners. “The Wayland Health Center embodies this commitment, ensuring high-quality healthcare is just around the corner for this community.”

The Wayland Health Center is designed to adapt to the growing healthcare demands of the region, part of UM Health-West’s commitment to enhancing patient care across West Michigan.
