A Letter from Dr. Frye - Moving from Hurley Clinic to Helen DeVos Children's Hospital Orthopedics
April 13, 2020
To the Patients & Families I have served,
It is with a heavy heart that I inform you I will be leaving Hurley Medical Center effective June 30, 2020. I will no longer be seeing patients in the Burton clinic after that time. It has been my absolute privilege to be your physician and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to provide your medical care. As my time at Hurley comes to a close, I wanted to reach out to families to help make this transition for you as easy as possible.
As of August 1st, I will be joining the Pediatric Orthopedics team at Spectrum Health/Helen DeVos Children's Hospital. I will have offices in Lansing and Owosso, and I plan to keep the same office hours. Please refer to my website, www.stacyfryemd.com for updated hours and contact information if you would like to continue seeing me for your medical care. Appointments for the Lansing & Owosso offices can be made by calling the main scheduling line: (616) 267-2600. It would be a genuine honor to continue to care for your family.
My last day at Hurley will be June 30, 2020. After that date, the pediatric orthopedic clinic will be closed and no longer available. If you need follow-up prior to that time, please contact our office at (810) 262-7747 for a final appointment so that we may discuss your care needs. I can also be reached via Hurley email at [email protected].
As the only pediatric orthopedic specialist in the area, the decision to leave Hurley has been a difficult one. Patient care is, and has always been, of utmost importance to me. Again, thank you for the privilege of being part of your medical care. I hope that I can continue to care for you at one of my new locations. If you choose to transfer care, I wish you only the best in the future.
Yours in good health,
Stacy Frye, M.D.
