Heartside Health Center serves people who are homeless and without a permanent residence. This includes people living on the streets or in missions, shelters, transitional housing and single-room occupancy hotels. Our mission also extends to people who are doubling up with other families on a temporary basis. Most, but not all, of our clients come from the Heartside area of Grand Rapids, the poorest section of the city. We average more than 600 medical and social work visits per month, so it is clear our services are urgently needed.
Heartside Clinic provides a range of health and social services in one convenient location. Our nurses, social workers, volunteers, manager and physicians are dedicated to providing compassionate, holistic health care:
Primary health care for adults
Mental health counseling
Substance abuse advocacy, referral and support
HIV counseling and testing
Bilingual English/Spanish services
Financial assistance for the uninsured
All of our services are provided on a "first come, first serve" basis. We accept clients regardless of their ability to pay; however, we work with clients to obtain eligible benefits such as Medicaid or Kent Health Plan.
In addition to our regular clinic hours, a Heartside nurse is available to address urgent medical needs 24 hours a day by phone. Call 616-685-5000 after hours and ask to speak with a Heartside nurse.
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Heartside Clinic - Heartside Health Center website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
|Persons In Family Household||Poverty Guideline Salary per year|
For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get legal aid from some offices, they use a sliding fee scale. When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
