Genesys Urgent Care - Downtown Flint will open Monday, Oct. 21

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Genesys Downtown Flint Health Center will be home to an urgent care facility beginning Monday, Oct. 21.
Hours of operation will be: Monday through Saturday from 5 pm to 8 pm. The center will be closed Sundays and holidays.

Genesys chose to open an urgent care center in downtown Flint because – as the revitalization of the Flint area continues – the need for medical care, including urgent care, also will continue to increase.

“Genesys strives to bring the right level of medical care to the right population in the right location,” announces Betsy Aderholdt, president and CEO of Genesys. “That is why we chose to open a health center and an urgent care facility downtown.

“As the revitalization of the Flint area continues, the need for ambulatory care also will continue to increase,” Aderholdt points out.

Genesys Urgent Care – Downtown Flint provides easy access for students, those who use public transportation, and those who work and live nearby. Entrance is off Kearsley Street. Patients can park in the Rutherford parking structure next to the facility.

The staff at Genesys Urgent Care – Downtown Flint will include physicians trained in primary care and emergency medicine who have many years of experience in treating patients with a wide range of illnesses and injuries. Fees for urgent care will be comparable to other after hours’ visit charges. Most insurances will be accepted and no appointments are necessary.

Patients who can benefit from urgent care are those with minor illnesses or injuries that do not require emergency care, and at a time when the primary care physician’s office is not open. Patients of all ages can use this facility.

“With the opening of the Genesys Downtown Flint Health Center in August, and Genesys Urgent Care on Oct. 21, we are keeping our promise to the residents of Flint that we are here, not only to keep you healthy, but to share in a vital partnership to revitalize this community, and to help it grow and flourish,” Aderholdt reports.

“Genesys looks forward to exploring more opportunities with our community partners to help in the revitalization of this community.”

To reach Genesys Urgent Care – Downtown Flint, call 810-762-1550.

Genesys also operates an urgent care facility at its East Flint Campus at 1460 N. Center Road in Burton. Hours are Monday through Saturday from 8 am to 9 pm, and noon to 4 pm on weekends. The center is closed on holidays.

In addition, Genesys opened Pediatric Urgent Care earlier this year for kids from infancy to 18 years of age. A board certified pediatrician sees children in a kid-friendly place that is quiet, welcoming, fast and efficient. Hours of Genesys Pediatric Urgent Care are Monday through Friday from 5:30 pm to 11 pm, and weekends and holidays from 1:30 pm to 7 pm.
