To better serve the medical needs of Eaton Rapids area residents, the Eaton Rapids Medical Center opened the new Riverside Family Practice at 2487 S. Michigan Rd.
The practice officially opened in June 2009, but is experiencing sizeable growth.
“We’re very busy and it happened a lot faster than we anticipated,” says Nancy Staffeld, vice president of Patient Services for the Eaton Rapids Medical Center.
Staffeld is hopeful that the medical center will earn a rural health clinic designation, which would allow Riverside Family Practice physicians to receive greater reimbursement for serving Medicaid and Medicare patients, giving these patients greater access to health care.
The Riverside Family Practice is a family practice, but also offers internal medicine and pediatric care. The new practice has three exam room as well as lab services.
