Metro Health Hospital supports Metro Health Sports Medicine, which continues to be a multifaceted entity with
physicians and therapists involved in high school, college, university, and professional team coverage, as well as
Special Olympics and community events. A new health and wellness center is being planned on the campus of the
new hospital.
Metro Health is very active in the Grand Rapids Community and has several relationships with sports teams at
different levels:
• Professional - Griffins (AHL), Whitecaps (“A” baseball), Edge (PDL soccer).

(NCAA D-II). We also work very closely with Cornerstone University (NAIA D-II).

others
• Community Events - 5/3 River Bank Run (with Metro ER), Reed’s Lake Run and Triathlon,

and Aquinas basketball games, playoffs and tournaments; multiple high school football games.
• On-site injury clinics-performed during games at the Griffins and Whitecaps games, weekly at
Calvin and Aquinas, and weekly/as needed at the high schools.
• Community events—multiple events are covered (runs, a marathon, a triathlon, basketball
tournaments, wrestling tournaments, a gymnastics tournament, and the Special Olympics
