Health Intervention Services

Healing for today. Hope for tomorrow.

Every day at HIS, we hear the stories of West Michigan residents that do not qualify for Medicaid or Medicare as well as those who have been priced out of the health insurance market. They want to participate in their health care and to experience the benefits of a healthy lifestyle but have remarkably few options when seeking out care for themselves and their families. Others have no ongoing access to health care at all, perhaps as refugees or immigrants, falling outside of traditional systems of advocacy and support.

[ This is where we step in ]

Health Intervention Services is a non-profit, faith-based health center in the heart of West Michigan. We are committed to increasing your individual well-being as well as the overall health of our community. We believe that everyone has the right to quality health care, spiritual restoration and social resources that promote physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. All of our services are focused on meeting the unique needs of the uninsured.
