At EvergreenHealth, we organize your care and services to help you smoothly navigate the health system from diagnosis through treatment and recovery.
That can make all the difference in achieving your best outcomes.
We hold ourselves accountable to keeping all of your providers informed about your care and progress.
To help you better understand the different kinds of care we offer, we've organized them into four categories:
Primary care covers your sick visits (flu, minor injuries), chronic illness management (diabetes, high blood pressure) and preventive visits (annual wellness exam). This is where potential health issues can be caught early.
EvergreenHealth Primary Care physicians and advanced practice providers see patients at 13 locations across the Eastside, alongside many community primary care practices. They can directly refer you to specialty services within the EvergreenHealth system, or to other community specialists. This simplifies the process and keeps patient teams closely informed.
When you need care by experts in a specific field of medicine, your primary care provider will refer you a specialist. For example, your doctor could refer you to an orthopedist for care of your back pain or to an ENT for care of your sinus condition.
EvergreenHealth has dozens of specialty care practices and also partners with independent specialists. They collaborate within the system to develop personalized care plans, and use digital tools and check-ins to share your progress and goals with each other.
Sometimes your treatment will take place in an outpatient setting. Examples of these would be getting treatment at one of our six Urgent Care centers, going to a diagnostic center for imaging or lab work, doing physical therapy at EvergreenHealth Rehabilitation Services or receiving care in your home from EvergreenHealth Home Care.
Using your patient medical record, all of your providers can stay informed of the care you're receiving.
If your journey requires care at one of our three emergency departments or at our hospitals in Kirkland or Monroe, you'll receive care from a collaborative medical staff comprised of a mix of EvergreenHealth and independent providers.
If you're admitted to the hospital, you care will be coordinated by a hospitalists. The hospitalist will order any necessary tests and review the results, and consult with any specialists that might be needed to manage your condition. Your referring provider will be updated as to your progress.
