Everett Clinic, two others open new health-care clinics

The Everett Clinic is continuing its push to expand, opening a new clinic in Woodinville. It’s the clinic’s third site outside Snohomish County.

Two other health care organizations also have opened local clinics recently — one in Mill Creek and one in Lake Stevens.

The Everett Clinic has been growing since it merged last year with Denver-based DaVita Healthcare, a publicly traded corporation that operates 2,000 outpatient kidney dialysis centers nationally.

The clinic opened its first site outside the county with a 40,000-square-foot clinic in Shoreline in September. It’s also opened smaller clinics in Mill Creek and Edmonds. The clinic also reached a deal to purchase Totem Lake Family Medicine in Kirkland, a family practice clinic.

On Monday, The Everett Clinic opened a 5,340-square-foot clinic at 17000 140th Ave. NE, Suite 101, in Woodinville. The Woodinville clinic offers family medicine and laboratory services as well as specialties including dermatology, allergy, asthma and immunology, behavioral health and child psychiatry.

The Woodinville clinic will employ six physicians, one licensed clinical social worker and 10 additional staff employees. The leased building is modeled after The Everett Clinic’s Smokey Point Medical Center, which has earned honors for patient-centered health care design.

The Everett Clinic plans to open a fourth site in King County in Bothell this December.

On Thursday, MultiCare Health System opened one of its Indigo Urgent Care Clinics in Lake Stevens. The 4,000-square-foot clinic is at 911 Frontier Circle E. It will employ 10.

MultiCare started the Indigo Urgent Care clinics in Tacoma in June 2016, followed by clinics in Tukwila, Covington, Mill Creek, the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle, Tumwater, Issaquah and Lacey. Additional clinics are planned for neighborhoods in Snohomish, Pierce, King and Thurston counties throughout this year.

At the Indigo Urgent Care clinics, patients are met by a health care concierge who sees to their needs from the time they walk in the door to the time they leave. The ambiance is meant to resemble a coffee shop to create a relaxing environment with complimentary coffee, water, wi-fi service and charging stations.

The clinic will treat injuries such as sprains and minor fractures, fevers and rashes and other ailments.

Earlier this month, Kirkland-based EvergreenHealth opened an 5,250-square-foot urgent care clinic at 4220 132nd St. SE, Suite 103, Mill Creek. A rotation of care providers will work at the clinic along with 14 other staff members.

EvergreenHealth Urgent Care Mill Creek features nine exams rooms and will be able to treat patients who require prompt medical attention for such things as minor injuries, coughs, colds and fevers and other infections. The clinic accepts walk-in appointments and online scheduling.

The practice intends to open an on-site laboratory and offer primary care services in 2018.
