About Us


Health Net of West Michigan is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization formed in April 2014 from Kent Health Plan and incorporated programs from First Steps Kent including: Kent County Oral Health Coalition (KCOHC), FitKids360, and Community Healthcare Access Program (CHAP). The organization was formed to shift focus after the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and initiation of the Healthy Michigan Plan.

How we help

We work to bridge gaps in healthcare by connecting individuals to the basic resources that every human being deserves to live a healthier life. We work primarily with vulnerable populations. We take a holistic approach to health by partnering with healthcare professionals, institutions, and non-profit organizations to provide education, accessibility and individualized attention. 


Our mission is to improve the health of children and adults, particularly vulnerable populations, through education and connections to health care and support services.


Our vision is for a community in which all people have the knowledge, resources, and support to maintain optimal health for themselves and their families.
