Catherine’s Health Center at Streams opened offers primary medical, behavior and dental care to patients regardless of insurance or ability to pay.

A nonprofit health center, serving uninsured and underinsured patients, has expanded its network in West Michigan. Catherine’s Health Center at Streams opened in Kentwood this month offering primary medical, behavior and dental care.

Sam Wohlfeil is the health group’s Director of Strategic Engagement. He told WGVU the practice is open for anyone, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.

"We’ve expanded a lot in the last years, and we really just want to make sure that the communities across not just Grand Rapids not just Kent County, but West Michigan as a whole know that we’re here and that are doors are open to serve," he said.

Federal and local grants, combined with funding from the Delta Dental Foundation and Michigan Dental Association made the expansion possible. Catherine’s Health Center now has four locations in West Michigan and said it's actively taking patients.
