The Herald reports on the completion of the purchase of The Everett Clinic by DaVita HealthCare Partners:
EVERETT — Don't look for any big changes Tuesday as the purchase of The Everett Clinic by DaVita HealthCare Partners becomes final. Not even the clinic's signs will change.
Patients won't see any difference in making appointments or with insurance issues, said Rick Cooper, The Everett Clinic's chief executive. Do look for big changes in the fall, however, as a new clinic in Shoreline — the organization's first in King County — opens.
Plans call for opening the $17 million, 40,000-square-foot clinic in September. The office, with 80 exam rooms, will have roughly the same number of health care staff as its Smokey Point clinic.
The Shoreline Clinic will open at 1201 N. 175th St., across from Shoreline City Hall. The services planned there include a walk-in clinic, family medicine, pediatric, and internal medicine as well as behavioral health, and specialists in allergy, dermatology, optometry, physical therapy, podiatry, pulmonary issues, occupational medicine, and obstetrics and gynecology.
