Nearly one year ago, ICHS first broke ground at the site of its future Shoreline clinic. After months of construction, the brand new medical-dental facility is approaching completion and scheduled to open within the next three months.
The new ICHS Shoreline clinic, the first-ever community health center in the city, will be located on Aurora Avenue North, just north of 165th Street. The area was identified as an ideal location for a new ICHS clinic site because of its sizable Asian Pacific Islander and immigrant community and a significant level of unmet need for affordable and in-language health services.
The 40,000 square-foot facility will have 20 medical examination rooms, 10 dental chairs, an in-house pharmacy and laboratory, a community hall, and classrooms for health education programs.
“The Shoreline community is looking forward to the opening of the new ICHS clinic. It will provide much-needed services for our residents and add to the rich network of programs and organizations that are working together to keep our community healthy,” says Armilito Pangilinan, ICHS board member and Shoreline resident.”
This past May, ICHS opened another clinic in Bellevue, expanding its network of care to areas outside of its traditional base in Seattle.
