On Monday, August 12, the Genesys Downtown Flint Health Center will open for business in a brand new facility located at 420 S. Saginaw Street.

The center will provide: Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, General Surgery, Podiatry, Diabetes Education and Behavioral Health.

Elizabeth Aderholdt, president and CEO of Genesys, said "the Genesys Downtown Flint Health Center is 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 today, tomorrow and for future generations."

Genesys is making a $3 million investment over seven years to open the new health center. They partnered with the now Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce, Uptown Reinvestment Corporation and Uptown Developments to open the new facility. Later this year, an urgent care center and a pharmacy will open inside.

The new Health Center will provide easy access for students, those who use public transportation and those who live and work nearby. Free parking is also available near the center's entrance on Kearsley and MTA buses stop right out front.

Hours for the new Genesys Downtown Flint Health Center are: Mondays though Thursdays from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and Fridays from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.
