Helping those who need health insurance


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) There’s healing for today and hope for tomorrow on Division Ave. in Grand Rapids. This week’s Connecting with Community Award Finalist addresses the need of health care to those individuals without insurance.

Health Intervention Services is a faith-based health center in downtown Grand Rapids formed by a partnership of volunteering community physicians.

Located on South Division, Health Intervention Services provides free health care where more 65% are Spanish speaking.

Many patients are working multiple part time jobs, but are not provided health insurance.

Volunteers include doctors, nurses, dentists, hygienists, and even nursing students. Some can volunteer as little as four hours a month, but through all their combined efforts, they are able to help the West Michigan community.
