Evergreen Healthcare signs lease for new Duvall medical facility

by Valley View staff
   Evergreen Healthcare has entered a five-year lease agreement for a new medical facility in Duvall, according to Evergreen spokesperson Kendra Weil.
   The facility, to be located at SR-203 and N.E. 145th St., will consist of more than 3,100 square feet with seven exam rooms, one procedure room and an x-ray room and laboratory. Groundbreaking on the new clinic is anticipated in November.
   The clinic is the result of the passage last November of Proposition 1 that annexed Evergreen Healthcare into the area around Duvall.
   The facility, scheduled to open in March 2002, is anticipated to accommodate nearly 16,000 visits annually by its fifth year of operation.
   Evergreen Hospital Medical Center is the cornerstone of Evergreen Healthcare that includes medical groups, home care, hospice and many other services and community health outreach programs.
   More than 700 physicians, representing over 50 specialties, provide clinical care in all major services, including cardiac, oncology, surgery and maternity care at Evergreen Hospital Medical Center.
