ARLINGTON -- People who want to check out the new Cascade Skagit Health Alliance clinic at Smokey Point have an opportunity this weekend.
An open house is set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the clinic, located at 3823 172nd St. NE in Arlington.
The 42,000-square-foot, $11 million, multi-specialty medical facility opened to patients on Monday, said Skagit Valley Hospital marketing director Kari Ranten.
Cascade Skagit Health Alliance is a collaboration of Cascade Valley Hospital and Clinics in Arlington and Skagit Valley Hospital in Mount Vernon. The two public hospital districts have worked together since 2007.
Providers at the facility offer primary and specialty health care services including family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, occupational medicine, oncology care and women's health. The facility also features urgent care, a pharmacy, a lab and X-ray and MRI services, Ranten said.
Several specialists, including cardiologists and a plastic and reconstructive surgeon based in Mount Vernon, plan to see patients at the Smokey Point location, she said.
Artwork in the building was created by local artists, and the open house is a rare chance to see it all, Ranten said. The clinic has nearly 60 exam rooms.
Clinic officials expect to see about 45,000 patient visits a year, along with about 40 patient visits a week in the cancer care unit of the clinic. About 75 people work at the new facility, a number that includes 17 new positions.
Hours of the urgent care clinic are 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends and holidays.
