Overlake Hospital Medical Center continues to grow on the eastside with new clinics opening over the next six months in Kirkland and Redmond.
Over the past two years Overlake has been focused on expanding. Their goal is to add new primary care clinics close to where people live and work and expand their physician network.
“At Overlake, we’re looking for ways to provide Eastside residents with better access to convenient and cost-effective medical care,” said Alan Ertle, MD, Overlake’s chief medical officer and vice president of network development. “Primary care and urgent care are two of the most efficient ways to access healthcare services, and both help patients actively manage their health with a focus on wellness and prevention. By opening neighborhood medical clinics that are connected to our hospital’s acute care, emergency services and affiliated specialist physicians, we’re offering patients the full spectrum of medical services that will allow us to better manage patients’ health conditions and better coordinate their care,” Ertle said.
Overlake Medical Clinics Kirkland, located at 290 Central Way, is slated to open October 17. In Redmond, Overlake will open a primary care clinic in Redmond Town Center, at 7525 166th Ave NE, Suite 105, and an urgent care clinic in Redmond’s Creekside Crossing development near SR 520, at 17209 Redmond Way. The Redmond primary care clinic is scheduled to open in January 2012 and the urgent care clinic is scheduled to open in December 2011.
