Welcome to International Community Health Services
International Community Health Services (ICHS) is a nonprofit community health center that offers affordable health care services to Seattle and King County’s Asian, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander communities, and the broader community. ICHS provides primary medical and dental care, health support services, and health education in seven locations.
ICHS has been a vital part of the community since opening in 1973 as a small, storefront health clinic in Seattle’s International District. Today, it is the largest Asian, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander community health center in Washington state. ICHS is fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). ICHS was presented by Washington Gov. Jay Inslee with the 2015 Warren Featherstone Reid Award for Excellence in Health Care, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services named ICHS the only “National Quality Leader” in Washington state in 2015 for exceeding national quality benchmarks for health care.
International Community Health Services (ICHS) has announced plans to hold the second annual Lunar New Year 5k in Shoreline on Sunday, February 26, 2017.
The Lunar New Year is traditionally the most significant holiday for many Asian Pacific Islanders, marking the return of Spring and a special time for families to offer wishes for health and prosperity in the coming year. The Year of the Rooster begins on January 28, 2017.
Over the course of several months, Jonathan Thaler organized multiple book drives, sorted and cleaned all books, and built bookshelves to house these books at the ICHS Bellevue Medical and Dental Clinic. In total, he gathered over 500 books, which will all be available for patients to take home with them.
