VA Puget Sound Health Care System will hold a grand opening ceremony (includes tours) for our new Everett Clinic August 30 from 10 to 11 a.m.
We will open the doors to in-person care at out Everett Clinic September 19 (virtual care has been in place since November 1, 2021).
Our Everett Clinic (220 Olympic Boulevard) is further proof of VA Puget Sound’s commitment to expanding primary care locations for our more than 120,000 enrolled Veterans across Western Washington.
The new $10 million, 28,000 sq. ft. clinic was designed with its Patient Aligned Care Teams at the heart of facility. It has 32 exam rooms. Of those, two are dedicated for women’s health one is a bariatric procedure room. Initially, three Patient Aligned Care Teams will support nearly 3,000 enrolled patients, and that is expected to double by early 2023, with the capacity to grow. Services at the Everett Clinic include primary care (in-clinic, home-based and homeless), laboratory services, behavioral health, social work, clinical pharmacy specialists, radiology (CT, echocardiogram, MRI and ultrasound) telemedicine and nutrition. Future specialty care is expected to include cardiology, podiatry, musculoskeletal, urology, gynecology, wound/ostomy care, dermatology, vascular surgery, hand, rehabilitation services (physical and occupational therapy, audiology, speech, chiropractic, blind rehabilitation, physical medicine and rehabilitation) and prosthetics and orthotics. Additionally, it expects to offer the Prevention of Amputation in Veterans Everywhere (PAVE) Program—a podiatry specialty clinic aimed at preventing or delaying limb loss as well as caring for Veterans who have had amputations.
Our Everett Clinic team is the fourth new VA Puget Sound outpatient clinic to open in just over year (Edmonds on June 14, 2021, Puyallup on July 16, 2021, and Olympia on August 16, 2021).
