Sindecuse temporarily moves main entry

May 11, 2006

KALAMAZOO--On May 1, the Sindecuse Health Center began a six-month renovation to expand the pharmacy, improve patient flow and install a drive-through pick-up window for pharmacy customers.

Regular visitors to Sindecuse will notice a few changes during the construction period, although all services remain open and normal operating hours are being maintained. One of the biggest changes is that the health center's main entrance has been temporarily closed, with parking near this entry limited.

A temporary main entrance has been set up on the building's north side. The entrance is located off Gilkinson Avenue on the side of Sindecuse that is closest to Goldsworth Valley Pond. Several spaces are available around this interim entry for Sindecuse patients.

People using the health center are asked to observe the parking signs, parking only in the appropriate spots, and to enter the building through the corner door labeled "main entry." For the duration of the renovation project, patients will register on the same level as the interim main entrance (first level). Signs will direct patients to the registration area.

In addition, the Sindecuse Pharmacy is temporarily being housed on the health center's third floor and is accessible by elevator. The pharmacy will move back to the main level to new and improved accommodations once renovations are complete.

A PDF file showing current construction and parking areas around the health center is available online at www.sindecuse.com. For more information, call the Sindecuse Health Center at (269) 387-3287.
