The facility’s design combines function with flexibility, ensuring ample room for additional programs and services as needed in the future. Design features include abundant natural light throughout the facility, water-conservative landscaping and a charging station for electric cars. Free, convenient parking will be available for patients and visitors. The architect was Rice Fergus Miller, Inc., of Bremerton.
“One of our highest priorities has been to create the right facility in the right setting that will support remarkable patient experiences and inspire community wellness,” said Catherine Edwards, MD, section head for primary care, Virginia Mason Bainbridge Island Medical Center. “The result is a medical facility that is second to none.”
Until the new medical center opens June 11, Virginia Mason care providers will continue to see and support patients at the current clinic location, 380 Winslow Way E.
