SEATTLE, April 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaiser Permanente is bringing its unique model of coordinated care to South Lake Union, further expanding patients' access to their choice of world-class providers in state-of-the-art facilities. Kaiser Permanente members will soon be able to access primary care, mental health and wellness, physical therapy, chiropractic, and lab services in a convenient location at 210 9th Avenue N., near Denny Park.
"Our medical office is designed to address patients' needs today in the most convenient way possible with the highest quality of care," said Alison Kneisl, MD, a family medicine physician on the new South Lake Union care team. "Members may choose their preference of in-person visits or virtual care when that's easier."
The new facility will open on May 28 and appointments with providers are already available. With its unique integrated care delivery model, all Kaiser Permanente providers including those in the new South Lake Union facility are fully coordinated to improve patients' experience, value, and wellness. Kaiser Permanente members can find convenient care through clinicians ranked among Washington's best, online access to appointments and care, and convenient care through care chat and a 24/7 consulting nurse hotline.
"South Lake Union has such a unique workforce and residents of all ages," said Alyce Sutko, MD, a family medicine physician who will practice at the new facility. "Our care team is here to offer full-spectrum primary care to help you live better. We're excited about the tools and expertise we can offer to support you in your wellness goals."
Kaiser Permanente continues to invest in its Washington members and communities. Four months ago, it opened a new medical office in Gig Harbor and it has new locations in Ballard, West Olympia, and Smokey Point slated to open within the next year.
Members can make an appointment at the new South Lake Union medical office through their online member portal or can call the member service center at 888-901-4636.
