New Genesee Health System building opens to provide comprehensive care for Flint area children in one location  

GENESEE COUNTY, MI – Today, on Friday, Nov. 11, Genesee Health System (GHS) and the Greater Flint Mental Health Facilities held a ribbon cutting ceremony 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,” Russell added. “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.

“This Children’s Center is because of a partnership with the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation, in addition to early and continued support from the Mott Foundation,” said William Winiarski, board chair of Greater Flint Children’s Mental Health Facilities, Inc.

“Now, anyone receiving children’s services from GHS will be welcomed to this beautiful, state-of-the art facility for one stop quality mental and physical health care,” Winiarski added.

 An open house for the community to tour the new facility will be Wednesday, November 30.
