Being Well Blog

“We know you well” means we not only know what it takes to keep you healthy, but that we actually get to know each other. No other group of doctors can do that like we can, because only the North Ottawa Medical Group is made up of doctors employed by North Ottawa Community Health System. We’re your neighbors, fellow parents at the school, coaches to your kids, and as much a part of this community as you are.

We want you to be healthy, and we want you to get to know us a bit better, so this blog will provide you with health and wellness information as well as fun ways to learn about who your home-town Medical Group doctors are. After all, being well is more than just great care. To the North Ottawa Medical Group, it’s also about building genuine personal relationships.

NOMG wants you to know it is NOT moving

February 23, 2018
North Ottawa Medical Group offices have received calls from patients confused about letters they received from Spectrum Health Medical Group, which led them to believe their physician was moving. It’s unclear why North Ottawa Medical Group patients would receive the letter, but we want to ensure you know that NOMG practices are not moving and your medical record will remain here, on site, in our offices on the NOCHS Main Campus. To reiterate:
  • None of North Ottawa Medical Group providers are moving from their current location(s). All 40+ of our providers remain right where they’ve always been, on the main NOCHS campus, adjacent to the hospital.


  • While Spectrum Health Medical Group will be moving out of our Harbor Dunes Medical Office Building on March 1, all other tenants will remain including: North Ottawa Medical Group’s Women’s Health practice, Grand Haven Bone & Joint (now part of Orthopaedic Associates of Muskegon), Shoreline Vision, Dunewood Pharmacy, Lakeshore Urology, West Shore Cardiology, NOCHS’ Bariatric Clinic, Michigan ENT & Allergy Specialists, and Foot & Ankle Specialists of Grand Haven. In fact, we continue to work on expanding your specialty choices, so stay tuned for future announcements.


  • NOMG is the largest medical group in the area. We continue to accept most insurance plans and do not determine acceptance of patients based on their insurance coverage, or ability to pay. Unlike many other providers in the area, we also continue to care for the under- and un-insured, without exception. Further, we continue to support the Love In Action Free Health Clinic, which exponentially increases access for our community’s underserved. Our mission is to serve ALL of our community’s residents, with easy to navigate, local access to excellent and compassionate care.
Please call (616) 847-5468 if you need to speak with someone about finding a doctor, or if you have questions. We are ready to help.
