FEDERAL WAY, WA (December 11, 2017) - Valley Cities has expanded its footprint by opening three new Seattle clinics: downtown at Pike Place Market, in Lake City, and in North Seattle on Aurora Avenue. All clinics will provide outpatient mental health services, substance use recovery and assessments, medication management, psychiatric evaluations, care coordination, and peer support.
With the opening of these clinics, Valley Cities is making significant progress towards addressing a severe crisis in access for mental health and substance use care in North King County. The addition of these clinics brings their total number of locations to 11.
The Pike Place Clinic will be the first mental health clinic at Pike Place Market and will provide behavioral health services, complementing the primary care services provided by Neighborcare Health on-site. The Lake City Clinic is located at McDermott Place, a facility that provides apartments for the homeless. The Aurora Clinic is located, along with Neighborcare Health, at St. Vincent de Paul, and provides comprehensive health care services at a single setting.
“Expanding our services to include more locations in North King County makes perfect sense,” says Dr. Brian Allender, Chief Clinical Officer. “The opioid epidemic hurts all communities and doesn’t discriminate based on geography. We’re about to help 1,200 more people each year with these new facilities. That’s a huge win for us, and the community.”
The new facilities will allow Valley Cities to provide coordinated health care through a partnership with Neighborcare Health and other community organizations. Patients will be able to have their primary and behavioral health care needs met seamlessly, leading to better overall health.
