The Hope Wayne Medical Clinic has moved to a new permanent location at 33608 Palmer Road in Westland. The clinic had been leasing space at the Metro Place Mall since a December 2010 gas explosion forced the evacuation of their previous home on Chestnut Street in Wayne. The first day of clinic operations in the new building was August 21.
The Palmer Road building provides the most space that the Wayne Clinic has had in its five-year history. The 2300 square-foot facility has five examinations rooms, plus a room devoted to other activities such as providing education about management of chronic health conditions.
The Wayne Clinic provides free primary medical care to low-income, uninsured adults. Clinic Coordinator Mary Dekker is looking forward to providing care for more patients in the larger clinic. “We are excited to be able to have more clinical volunteers serving together at one time. This will increase the number of patients we can see during each clinic session.”
Hope Wayne Clinic is a satellite of Hope Medical Clinic in Ypsilanti and primarily serves residents of western Wayne County. All treatment is provided by volunteer medical professionals, supported by a small paid staff. Ms. Dekker says that the clinic is actively recruiting more volunteer clinicians, including doctors, nurses, and nurse practitioners, in order to maximize use of the new building.
