Overlake Hospital Medical Center announced Thursday that it plans to open two new clinics in Redmond in the next six months.
The facilities include an urgent care center in the Creekside Crossing development at 17209 Redmond Way and a primary care clinic in Redmond Town Center at 7525 166th Ave. NE, Suite 105. The urgent care clinic is set to open this December, while the primary care center is scheduled to open in January 2012.
Overlake is also planning to open a clinic in downtown Kirkland at 290 Central Way. That clinic is set to open Oct. 17.
Patient care services at the primary care clinics will include same-day and walk-in appointments, comprehensive care for adults, immunizations, physical exams, acute care and chronic disease management. The Redmond urgent care clinic will include 10 exam rooms and a full-service imaging center with digital X-ray, CT and ultrasound.
Over the past two years, Overlake has focused on adding new primary care clinics and expanding its physician network to better serve patients in convenient locations close to where they live and work.
“At Overlake, we’re looking for ways to provide Eastside residents with better access to convenient and cost-effective medical care,” Alan Ertle, Overlake’s chief medical officer and vice president of network development, said in a statement. “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.”
