ELK RAPIDS — Munson Medical Center’s Elk Rapids patients can now get more care close to home.
“That’s always been a Munson mantra,” Munson Radiology Director Daniel Fly said. “Bringing these services closer to our patients is really exciting to all of us and I think it’s really appreciated by the community.”
Munson Outpatient Services of Elk Rapids opened in its new location at 115 Bridge Street this month. The clinic added more lab services and a radiology department and can serve more patients.
The Elk Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on June 12. Chamber Executive Director Misty Youngson said the clinic adds convenience for local patients who used to drive to Traverse City for radiology.
“It makes a big difference,” Youngson said. “It saves time and saves money for the patient.”
