TWO SEATTLE-AREA FACILITIES TO HAVE FREE-STANDING ERs, AMBULATORY CARE
By John Mugford
Plans continue to move forward for two new outpatient projects in the Puget Sound area involving Seattle-based Swedish Health Services. One project is slated for Redmond, in the northeast Seattle suburbs, while the other is planned for Mill Creek, about 20 miles north of downtown Seattle.
Both of the projects would provide ambulatory care services and include freestanding emergency rooms (ERs). They are similar to a facility operated by Swedish in the Seattle suburb of Issaquah. That facility, which opened in 2005, includes the first freestanding ER in the region.
The project in Redmond would have a total of 84,560 square feet of space, with Swedish leasing 55,000 square feet for clinical programs such as 18 exam rooms, advanced diagnostic imaging (including X-ray, ultrasound, CT scan and MRI), on-site laboratory services, and offices for primary and specialty care physicians.
