FLINT — Construction on the new state-of-the-art Center for Children’s Integrated Services is finished and the new facility, located at S. Saginaw Street and I-69, officially opened its doors with a ribbon cutting ceremony, Nov. 18.
Genesee Health System (GHS) and the Greater Flint Mental Health Facilities held the ribbon cutting ceremony for the facility that brings comprehensive care for Flint and Genesee County children to a single location.
The 60,000 square-foot building, located at 1402 S. Saginaw St., will have all GHS children’s program areas in one building, including the Children’s Integrated Services Assessment Clinic, Children’s Autism Center, and Child and Family Services.
Danis Russell, CEO of Genesee Health System, thanked all of the GHS’s partners in the project, who together made the $23 million facility happen….
The facility, located at S. Saginaw and Ninth Street, at the bridge of I-69, consolidates three separate buildings used by GHS to house its core services for children and families under one roof.
These include the Neurodevelopmental Center for Excellence (NCE), Autism Services, Child & Family Services and a federally qualified health care center…
“As a non-profit, economic developer part of our goal at the URC is to help other non-profits by providing capacity especially on complex projects like this,” said Herman. “We’re thrilled to be partnered with GHS on this project. It has such a long-term impact and a positive impact.”
Ridgway White, president and CEO of the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation said there were a lot of teams from the community involved in the funding and construction of the Center for Children’s Integrated Services.
“We work harder than anybody else, with less, sometimes, but we accomplish great things,” said White. “The Center for Children’s Integrated Services is designed to better serve kids and families.”
