Bellin Health’s Manitowoc clinic opening Monday, June 29

06/25/2009

MANITOWOC — Bellin Health Family Medical Center-Manitowoc will open Monday, June 29 in the building formerly occupied by Copps Food Center.

Dr. Chris Kordiyak, a family medicine physician in Manitowoc since 1991, will move to the remodeled clinic building at 3415 Custer St., Suite D. Dr. Michael Hoffman will join Kordiyak at the clinic next year.

Bellin Health Family Medical Center-Manitowoc offers convenient family medicine, including: 24/7 appointment scheduling; same day appointments; onsite bone density testing; lab services; and more. The Manitowoc clinic accepts all major insurance plans, including United Health Care.

The new clinic will serve as an entryway to Bellin’s other health service areas, including first-class heart and cardiovascular care, oncology expertise, orthopedics and robotic-assisted surgery, to name a few.

Bellin first entered the Manitowoc area in 2007 with its FastCare retail health clinic. This is the health system’s first primary care clinic in Manitowoc.

“Bellin offers a lower-cost, high-quality alternative to health care services currently offered in our area,” Kordiyak said. “I’m delighted to be practicing with them and will work to help them better blend into our community.”

Amy Dettman, director, Bellin Medical Group, said Bellin moved onto the area with the intent to improve overall health for individuals and families.

“We are concerned with keeping health care local,” she said. “Bellin has established primary care clinics in more than 15 other communities across the state and in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with the goal of keeping health care local. Roughly
$103 million in health care spending is leaving the area. Enhancing the primary care base in the Manitowoc community will help improve access and enhance the quality of care for patients.”

Bellin Health was recently spotlighted nationwide during President Barack Obama’s visit to Green Bay for its affordable, high-quality health care model. The health system plans to bring its nationally renowned expertise to Manitowoc and give residents an opportunity to experience lower-cost, high-quality health care from a regional leader.

“Bellin has a record of excellent care, experience and an admirable level of service to the community,” Kordiyak said. “For our patients, current and new, it means they’ll enjoy enhanced and expanded services and new technologies – all while enjoying Bellin’s strong emphasis on local, personalized care.”

Employers can look forward to Bellin’s arrival as well, Kordiyak said.

“Our area employers are always looking for more affordable health care options. Bellin Health plans to fill that need,” he said. “That’s why we’re here. Bellin isn’t here to take from our community, they’re here offering a solution to our local health care concerns.”
