Cherry Health is taking a patient focused approach to your health care. We are transforming our offices to patient-centered medical homes to serve as your consistent, reliable source for preventative care, as well as for treatment of illness and chronic medical conditions. The focus of a medical home is you and your relationship with your health care provider. We are focusing on you, the patient, and want to be the first place you think of for your health care needs.

Your medical home is a place you feel comfortable and confident- both in the relationship with your provider and the quality of care you receive. You and your provider together will focus on treating your medical conditions and preventing problems from occurring in the future. We aim to help you put control of your health where it belongs – with you and your health care provider.

Cherry Health accepts most commercial insurances, Medicaid, Healthy Michigan and Medicare.
Cherry Health provides high quality health care to all individuals regardless of ability to pay. If you are uninsured, a sliding fee scale is available based on income and family size.

If you are a new patient and would like to make an appointment, please call 616.965.8308 or email

Medication Assisted Treatment Programs

Medication assisted treatment is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and psychosocial therapies, to provide a whole-patient approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. At the Southside Health Center and Muskegon Recovery Center there is a primary focus on providing integrated care for persons addicted to opiates, such as heroin, prescription opiates such as Vicodin ®, etc. In this treatment program the medications help to stabilize brain activity which has been altered by the addiction to opiates, which enables the patient to engage in the therapies and other supportive services that assist in their recovery.
