KENTWOOD, Mich.(Grand Rapids Business Journal) -- While some employers in West Michigan in recent years closed their on-site health care clinics for employees, Lacks Enterprises in Kentwood is moving in the other direction.

Lacks, an automotive parts manufacturer with 2,800 employees at 18 plants in Greater Grand Rapids, plans to open one primary health care clinic for employees and their dependents by Jan. 1. Another is expected to open a week or two later, according to Jim Green, executive director of human resources at Lacks.

The clinics, at 826 Parchment Drive SE and 7101 Broadmoor Ave. SE, will be in close proximity to the majority of the company's factories, which are in the 44th Street and 52nd Street areas.
