Swedish to partner with Peninsula Community Health Services to keep healthcare in Kingston
March 13, 2017
We are pleased to announce Swedish and Peninsula Community Health Services (PCHS) have finalized an agreement to keep healthcare accessible in Kingston and on the Olympic Peninsula. Effective May 1, 2017, PCHS will sublease the existing Swedish space located at 25989 Barber Cut Off Road Kingston, WA 98346.
“Swedish has enjoyed partnerships with NeighborCare and Country Doctor in the Seattle area and we look forward to doing the same with PCHS in Kingston,” said Jim Cunningham, administrative director of Primary Care, for Swedish. “It was a difficult decision for us to leave Kingston so we are very pleased we were able to work with PCHS on this agreement to help meet the needs of the community.”
“Although not originally part of our strategic plan for 2017, the PCHS Board of Directors is proud to better meet the needs of the local community on the far north end,” said Jennifer- Kreidler-Moss, CEO for Peninsula Community Health. “Our Poulsbo clinic already serves more than 800 residents with a Kingston zip code, but we hope to bring that care closer to their homes. We are working to find two designated providers to see patients of all ages from birth through the senior years. The patients will also be able to utilize specialty services at our other sites, including dental, pharmacy, nutrition, counseling, and substance abuse treatment.”
PCHS plans to open the clinic for patients this spring. More information will be available on the PCHS website or Facebook page or can be obtained by calling the main number at 360-377-3776. Swedish will continue to have clinics in both Bainbridge Island and in Edmonds.
