Kirkland, Wash. – EvergreenHealth is expanding its patient care offerings with the opening of EvergreenHealth Eye Care, which began serving patients on September 25 from two practice locations in Mill Creek and Kirkland.

The new practice opens as part of an acquisition of Mill Creek-based Cascade Eye M.D.s, and the hiring of Dr. James Stroh of the Eye Clinic of Bellevue. In Mill Creek, Dr. Richard Kenny and Dr. Rachel Reinhardt will continue practicing from their existing location, while Dr. Stroh will lead the new EvergreenHealth Eye Care, Kirkland practice on the health system’s Kirkland campus.

“These skilled and dedicated eye care specialists have long been trusted health partners in the community, and it is our pleasure to welcome them to EvergreenHealth as new colleagues,” said EvergreenHealth CEO Bob Malte. “We look forward to introducing eye care to the expanding breadth of comprehensive services provided within the EvergreenHealth network.”

With strong ties in the community and a long-term professional commitment to the area, the board-certified ophthalmologists each use a patient-centered approach with a focus on disease prevention to provide quality eye and vision care to patients of all ages. The Kirkland and Mill Creek practices offer medical, surgical and optical eye care to patients, including adult and pediatric eye exams, glasses prescriptions assessments, and cataract surgery and treatment for various eye conditions, infections and disorders.
