The ICHS Shoreline Medical and Dental Clinic is off to a strong start after the grand opening Thursday, Sept. 25.
The clinic opened it’s doors to patients Monday, Sept. 15. The official grand opening ceremony drew more than 250 supporters, community partners, patients and staff to see the new 40,000-square-foot facility.
“We are here for the Shoreline Community,” said CEO Teresita Batayola. “We will provide service to everyone in Shoreline regardless of age or race.”
Shoreline is ICHS’s fourth full-service clinic and seventh service site. The opening of the Shoreline and Bellevue clinics this year marks the emergence of ICHS as a regional health care provider, not simply a Seattle-based organization. ICHS is the first community clinic in Shoreline.
“We appreciate the warm welcome from the many people in Shoreline,” Batayola said. “We now definitely feel we are helping weave the safety net of the Shoreline community.”
The Shoreline clinic is located just north of 165th Street on Aurora Avenue North. It has 20 medical exam rooms, 10 dental chairs and 80 parking spaces for patients. It is projected to serve nearly 12,000 patients each year.
