In late 2019, Memorial Healthcare, headquartered in Owosso, MI, broke ground on a new $50 million 115,000 square foot patient-centered neurology, orthopedic, rehabilitation, and community wellness center. The new center, tentatively scheduled to open in May 2022, will provide not only access to world-class specialty providers and rehabilitation services but will also offer community members the opportunity to join a medically-based wellness center featuring a lap pool, sauna, free weights, running track, child care services, and more.

At the Institute for Neuroscience, our approach to innovation is focused on the patient experience. Patients will receive same-day services, including lab, imaging, social workers, physical therapy, pharmacy, and more. The center is designed specifically with our patients in mind: where services are brought directly to patient treatment rooms versus having patients travel to different locations to receive services. We strive to exceed every patient’s expectations when they walk through our doors, and we hope to create a new paradigm for health care in the process.

Living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) can challenge your health, relationships, employment, and overall wellness. Participating in an MS Support Group can be helpful as it offers a safe place for patients and loved ones impacted by MS to gather and develop an extended support system. This support group will offer the following:

  • Exchanging tips and information
  • Talking about challenges
  • Learning new coping strategies
  • Sharing feelings, needs and concerns
  • Learning about resources available in the community

This MS Support Group is held virtually via Zoom. To sign up for a session, please contact Paige Goulette, Nurse Navigator at (989) 725-9424 (extension 6403) or contact Paige by email by clicking here.
