On May 13, ICHS was one of 19 organizations to receive grants in the Chinatown-International District and Pioneer Square. The grants will fund projects that support small businesses and local nonprofits, improve public spaces, and protect and develop historic and cultural programs.

The ICHS multimedia exhibit will include photos, video and objects that highlight key moments in the 46-year history of ICHS as it has grown from a one-room storefront clinic into a regional health care provider that now serves over 31,000 patients in over 50 languages at 11 service sites in Seattle, Bellevue and Shoreline. It will be located in the first floor lobby of the ID clinic.

ICHS Foundation Director Ron Chew noted, “This exhibit will help newcomers and the next generation of patients and supporters understand how the institution came to be and the continuing relevance of our guiding mission of health equity.”

It will be dedicated in August 2019 in celebration of National Health Center Week.
