Seattle Children’s Opens New Clinic to Increase Access to Specialty Care Services for Families in South Sound
New clinic replaces the Seattle Children’s Federal Way facility, which closed on Aug. 12
Seattle Children’s Hospital announced today the opening of its newest regional clinic, Seattle Children’s South Clinic, to give families in South King and Pierce counties better access to more pediatric speciality clinicians and services as well as an after-hours urgent care facility.
The 32,000-square-foot free-standing facility, located at 34920 Enchanted Parkway South in Federal Way, replaces the Seattle Children’s Federal Way facility, which closed on Aug. 12. The new clinic will house more than 15 pediatric specialty clinics, including cardiology, dermatology, gastroenterology, orthopedics and sports medicine. The clinic will also include an evening/weekend/holiday urgent care clinic, imaging, a sports therapy gym, and occupational,physical and speech therapy services.
“A great deal of thought went into making this clinic right for the kids who need us,” said Katherine Flynn, director of Seattle Children’s South Clinic. “Families in South King and Pierce counties will have access to even more of the services and extraordinary specialists available at our main campus, as well as after-hours urgent care, in a convenient location. I’m excited to welcome patients to this new facility.”
For Cynthia Gordon and her 7-year-old son, Omari, the new clinic is a welcome addition to the South Sound. Omari, who has cerebral palsy, needs services that the Seattle Children’s Federal Way facility couldn’t provide. The new clinic will allow him to get the occupational and physical therapy services he needs.
“We were so excited when he heard about the opening of Seattle Children’s South Clinic,” said Gordon. “Omari asks every day, ‘When can we go?’ The need in this area is just so tremendous!”
The new clinic is part of Seattle Children’s regional clinic network, which also includes sites in Bellevue, Everett, Mill Creek, Olympia , Tri-Cities and Wenatchee.
“The South Clinic aligns perfectly with our overarching mission to make specialty care accessible and convenient for families,” said Todd Johnson, vice president of facilities at Seattle Children’s. “A great deal of thought went into making this clinic right for the community it serves. It’s beautiful, welcoming, versatile and efficient.”
