It is exciting to be able to offer to Spectrum Health patients who live in this area the convenience of an integrated care campus, said Tina Freese Decker, executive vice president, chief operating officer, Spectrum Health. This facility was designed with the needs of our patients as our primary focus. Patients and their families have told us that they greatly appreciate the convenient design, locations and services that we are able to provide in our integrated care campuses.
The ICC at Rockford will be open to patients starting Monday, August 7. The 30,000 square foot building will house:
Spectrum Health Medical Group Family, Internal & Pediatric Medicine
