New Sparrow health clinic opens at the Meijer in Okemos

OKEMOS, Mich. (WLNS) – The Meijer in Okemos is offering a lot more than groceries, household items and gas.

The retailer is partnering with Sparrow Hospital to make your life even more convenient.

The Sparrow FastCare clinic is now open inside the Meijer store in Okemos.

The facility is the first of its kind in mid-Michigan and will offer walk-in service for basic health care needs. If you do not have insurance or have a high deductible plan you can still take advantage of the clinic. Most visits are priced at $69 and most insurances are accepted and co-pays apply.

Some of the minor injuries and illnesses that will be treated at the clinic include allegies, cold and flu symptoms, bladder and ear infections, and minor burns or rashes. Routine sports or camp physicals, TB skin tests and free blood pressure checks are also available.

After a ribboncutting and open house this morning the clinic opened to patients at noon today.

The regular hours for the clinic are 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. every day except Christmas.
