Bothell, Wash. – EvergreenHealth is pleased to announce that its Lakeshore Bothell primary care location partially reopened to the public after a temporary relocation due to a flood requiring significant repairs and construction. The first phase of the reopening includes one of the two floors in the downtown Bothell facility. The practice expects to open the second floor later in April.

The Bothell practice was forced to temporarily close in December 2017 due to water damage caused by a water tank leak. The Lakeshore Bothell physicians and care team relocated temporarily to the EvergreenHealth’s Lakeshore Totem Lake location in Kirkland to maintain patient care.

Now, staff and providers at the Lakeshore Bothell location are once again welcoming patients to the upstairs portion of the clinic, which houses five providers, medical assistants, reception and lab staff.

“While this flood was an extremely unfortunate situation, we are so proud of our team of providers and staff who were able to sustain care for their patients by sharing space with our Totem Lake team,” said Bob Malte, EvergreenHealth CEO. “We are pleased that our Bothell location has partially reopened and remains a thriving resource for its surrounding community thanks to the commitment of its staff and providers to delivering a superior patient experience.”

Starting last month, Drs. Boboc, Eckert, Esser, Higginbothan and Wilson can see their patients in Bothell again, while Drs. Herron, Leonardo, Platz, Reid and Sefton will continue to see patients at the Totem Lake location. The entire facility is slated to reopen to the public within the next few weeks when all construction repairs have been completed.
