Genesee Health System Hosts Community Open House for New Children’s Center

Genesee Health System (GHS) and the Greater Flint Mental Health Facilities hosted a community open house for the new state-of-the-art Center for Children’s Integrated Services that brings comprehensive care for Flint and Genesee County children to a single location.

The 60,000 square-foot building will have all GHS children’s program areas in one building, including the Children’s Integrated Services Assessment Clinic, Children’s Autism Center, and Child and Family Services.

“The opening of this building is a celebration for the entire community,” said Danis Russell, CEO of GHS. “We know that Flint and Genesee County has one of the highest needs for child mental, developmental, and physical health services. GHS and GCHC staff have been working hard to welcome families and provide the expanded continuum of care needed. It is always our goal and purpose to create an ease of access to mental health programs. The new Center for Children’s Integrated Services is a huge step in maintaining that goal.”

In June 2021, GHS broke ground on this facility located at South Saginaw Street between 9th and 10th streets. The building was funded through a mix of private and public funding, including grants and New Market Tax Credits.
