SEATTLE – (Nov. 14, 2013) — A public open house celebrating Virginia Mason University Village Medical Center is set for 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., this Saturday, Nov. 16.

And beginning in January, asthma and allergy care, dermatology, and onsite laboratory and radiology services will be offered, as well.

“We designed Virginia Mason University Village Medical Center from the ground up with input from our patients and their family members, as well as our team members,” said Jim Cote, senior vice president and clinic administrator. “We have applied more than a dozen years of success with the Virginia Mason Production System to guide our patients’ health care experience.”
The production system is Virginia Mason’s renowned management methodology for identifying and eliminating waste, improving quality and safety, and lowering cost. This innovative approach to health care delivery has elevated Virginia Mason to being one of the most honored health systems in the country.
Located in the new south building of the expanded University Village, 2671 NE 46th Street, Virginia Mason University Village Medical Center occupies approximately 20,000 square feet of leased space. It is part of Virginia Mason’s network of medical facilities in Seattle, Lynnwood, Kirkland, Bellevue, Issaquah, Federal Way, and on Bainbridge Island.
