New location shares space with the system’s existing primary location and now provides walk-in care services seven days a week

Sammamish, Wash. — EvergreenHealth opened its fourth urgent care location on the Puget Sound region’s Eastside, with a new location in Sammamish, Washington. This latest expansion, which is co- located with the health system’s existing primary care practice in Sammamish, opened in late October and joins the health system’s expansive network of care, offering extended operating hours to provide accessible prompt-care options to patients and families across Sammamish, Issaquah and Redmond.

Along with walk-in appointments and extended evening and weekend hours, the Sammamish urgent care center also offers online check-in and scheduling for patients who wish to secure a specific time for their visits. Patients can also check wait-times online prior to visiting the clinic, alongside the wait times at the health system’s other three urgent care locations.

“Our latest urgent care addition helps us to fulfill our commitment to our community to expand thoughtfully to meet the needs of our region’s most rapidly growing areas,” said Bob Malte, CEO of EvergreenHealth. “We opened EvergreenHealth Urgent Care, Sammamish at the request of patients whom we already serve in that area, and this expansion helps us to keep pace with the evolving health care needs of our community.”

EvergreenHealth Urgent Care, Sammamish, joins the health system’s other locations in Redmond, Woodinville and a new Mill Creek location, which opened in July. The urgent care network will soon grow to five, when a new location opens in Kenmore on November 13.

“We continually seek ways to realize our purpose to improve the health and well-being of every life we touch,” Malte added. “And to do so in ways that enhance value for our patients by providing cost- effective and convenient care.”

In addition to its four urgent care locations, EvergreenHealth also offers 24-hour emergency care in Kirkland, Redmond and Monroe, along with 12 primary locations throughout the Eastside and an expansive network of specialty care.

EvergreenHealth Urgent Care, Sammamish, is open Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Saturday – Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and is located at 22850 NE 8th St., Suite 103 in Sammamish.
