Overlake Continues Expanding Clinic Network; Urgent Care Clinic To Open in Redmond January 9

Bellevue, Wash. – Overlake Hospital Medical Center is continuing to grow its network of clinics on the Eastside and will open the brand new Urgent Care Clinic at Overlake Medical Clinics Redmond on January 9, 2012. The clinic is located at Creekside Crossing Shopping Center in Redmond and will be open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. When used appropriately for non-life-threatening conditions, Urgent Care can be a cost-effective treatment option, with a co-pay that is usually less than one for an emergency room visit.

"Overlake is an independent, community-focused hospital that is driven by the key objective of best serving the Eastside community," said Craig Hendrickson, Overlake's President and CEO. "The continued expansion and opening of this Urgent Care Clinic in Redmond allows us to continue to provide our patients with excellent care and our signature attention to detail, quality and patient safety."

The primary focus of the network of Overlake Medical Clinics, including the new clinic in Redmond, is to promote health and wellness. Over the past two years, Overlake has focused on adding new primary and urgent care clinics and expanding its physician network to better serve patients in convenient locations close to where they live and work. Each clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and is designed to provide patients with a comfortable healing environment and short wait times.

The Redmond Urgent Care Clinic will be Overlake's seventh primary care clinic on the Eastside. The other six clinics are scattered across Bellevue, Kirkland and Issaquah. An eighth primary care clinic will be opening at the Redmond Town Center in spring of 2012.
