Sparrow opens region’s first FastCare clinic, a new concept in local health care

Sparrow FastCare Frandor opened on Tuesday, June 30, offering the first new treatment option of its kind in the mid-Michigan region.

The new clinic at 716 N. Clippert Street is a more affordable option for basic medical services than a hospital emergency room or urgent care clinic. FastCare offers prompt treatment for common, non-life-threatening conditions such as minor injuries and infections. Services include routine camp and sports physicals. There are no appointments. Care is offered on a first-come/first-served basis.

FastCare is convenient, affordable health care provided by Sparrow Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. But you don’t have to be a Sparrow Patient — just someone who wants exceptional care without the wait.

More FastCare facts:
