Kaiser Permanente Announces 5 New Clinics Coming Soon
SEATTLE – Kaiser Permanente will expand its number of medical centers to 30 by adding five new medical centers over the next eighteen months, further expanding patients’ access to their choice of world class providers in state of the art facilities. Today the organization announced that individuals and families who trust Kaiser Permanente will soon be able to access convenient care in Gig Harbor, Ballard, West Olympia, Smokey Point, and Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood.
“We are proud to continue making strategic and customer-driven investments in great care and good jobs in our communities,” said Susan Mullaney, President of Kaiser Permanente Washington. “Now even more patients across our state will have convenient access to the care they want, where they want it.”
With its unique integrated care delivery model, all Kaiser Permanente providers are fully coordinated to improve patients’ experience, value, and wellness. Kaiser Permanente members can find convenient care through clinicians ranked among Washington’s best, online access to appointments and care, and now even more medical centers designed with their needs in mind. The new medical centers will open between the end of 2018 and early 2020.
“As clinicians, we are thrilled to bring our excellent primary, specialty, and ambulatory care to more communities,” said Stephen Tarnoff, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Washington Permanente Medical Group. “Kaiser Permanente physicians are conveniently available to our patients, ready to provide exceptional care for everybody.”
Kaiser Permanente continues to make investments in our Washington members and communities at a breakneck pace. Concurrent with the new medical center openings, the organization is undertaking an extensive redesign and remodel of its flagship Capitol Hill campus in a process that will continue through 2022 to improve patients’ access and experience, and continues to look ahead to desired expansion of CareClinic sites throughout the region. Earlier this year it also unveiled upgrades and innovations to its telehealth options to further expand consumer choice.
“We continue to grow and innovate so that each patient in Washington state can have even more choices for great care,” said Mullaney. “Our members expect everything, and that’s what we strive to provide-- experience, affordability, technology, and convenience.”
