FAQs About Central District Reopening

OBCC’s Central District location on E. Yesler Way closed in 2022 for building repairs. A new OBCC location in the Central District was announced in September, 2023 and is estimated to open in 2025. This is in addition to OBCC Othello, which provides a full range of medical, dental, behavioral health and other services.

Q: Where is the new location and what services will it provide?

A: The site of the new Central District location is located on the corner of 18th Ave. S. and S. Jackson St. and will offer robust medical, mental health and behavioral health services to patients and families. Dental services will remain at OBCC Othello.

Q: Why did the Central District location on E. Yesler Way close?

A: During an evaluation of a project to repair the weather barrier and assess the structural integrity of OBCC Central District, we discovered the need for more extensive repairs to the building. For that reason, OBCC leadership made the decision to close the E. Yesler Way location. We will open a new location in the Central District on the corner of 18th Ave. S. and S. Jackson St. in 2025.

Q: Where do we go if we want to receive care at OBCC now and how do we get there?
