West Side Connections
St. Ann’s is not only a high-quality provider of a full range of senior health care services, it is seen as an anchor on Grand Rapids’ West Side. Local media reports have described the West Side area St. Ann’s shares with small business, churches, welcoming neighborhoods and open spaces as “one of the city’s great assets.” Just to the west of the campus, Grand Rapids borders the city of Walker, described as a vibrant and family-friendly community.
St. Ann’s proudly cultivates and supports this premise, and continues to work with neighbors and businesses to promote and participate in community-focused events. Among the West Side gems near to St. Ann’s are the John Ball Park Zoo, West Catholic High School, Versluis Orchards with its seasonal farm stand, the 143-acre nature preserve known as Blandford Nature Center, and golf courses.
