PORTAGE, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A new partnership between two West Michigan companies could help you get medical attention more quickly.

A medical clinic, called Bronson FastCare, will open Tuesday morning inside the Meijer on Westnedge in Portage.

This is the first partnership between Bronson and Meijer.

Bronson says FastCare is "healthcare at the speed of life" to get you help when you're sick with little or no wait. The quick clinic will be open seven days a week, 364 days a year to see people with minor issues like cold and flu symptoms, ear infections and pink eye. The clinic will also perform pregnancy tests and even sports physicals.
Free blood pressure checks, immunizations and additional screenings will also be available.

Bronson officials say they are testing out the FastCare concept in Portage but may open additional clinics in other areas if it is successful.

John Jones, chief operating officer of Bronson Medical Practices, says the goal is to serve people where they live, work and shop and help get sick individuals on the fast path to recovery.

"We're in your neighborhood and it's that access to the right care at the right time," Jones tells NewsChannel 3. "It's designed so that when you need the care, it's there at the right time, at the right place and the right value."

Bronson FastCare will accept most insurance plans. For people with a high deductible or no insurance, the clinic will charge 69-dollars for a visit, which includes all labs.

Bronson FastCare will not provide emergency care, on-site x-rays, stitches or treatment for broken bones.

It will be open Monday through Friday (starting April 1st) 8:30am to 8:30pm, Saturdays from 9am-6pm and Sundays from 10am-5pm.

The only day of the year the clinic will be closed is Christmas Day.
