Overlake to Host Community Celebration at New Medical Center in Issaquah

New 9,500-square-foot facility will offer residents greater access to healthcare and improved patient comfort

Overlake Hospital Medical Center will host a community open house celebration for its new Medical Center Issaquah, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, August 6, 2009. The celebration will take place at the new facility in Issaquah, located at 5708 E. Lake Sammamish Parkway SE, Issaquah, WA 98029.

The event will feature: 

  • Former Seattle Mariner and former New York Yankee All-Star pitcher Jeff Nelson.
  • The first 100 kids will receive coupons for $20 sports physicals that can be redeemed at Overlake’s Urgent Care Clinic.
  • A variety of fun, sports-themed activities for all ages.
  • FREE picnic dinners.
  • Music and giveaways from STAR 101.5.
  • Tours of the new facility. 

Just before the event, Issaquah Mayor Ava Frisinger will be on hand for an official ribbon-cutting ceremony with Overlake executives, staff and community leaders.

“We look forward to inviting the community in to take a look at our new medical center in Issaquah before we move and open to patients later this summer,” said Craig Hendrickson, Overlake president and CEO. “They will be able to see first hand how we’ve elevated the level of patient comfort and convenience they will receive at our new facility. And because this area is growing, we have the opportunity to expand here when needed.”

The new Overlake Medical Center Issaquah will house an Urgent Care Clinic, Anticoagulation Clinic, Breast Screening Center, Women’s Clinic, as well as primary care offices and a classroom for community education. Due to the increasing demand for primary care in Issaquah and the surrounding areas, Overlake is planning to add up to three primary care physicians by the end of the year.

Overlake will continue to provide patient care services at its existing Medical Center Issaquah in the Meadow Creek Professional Center at 6520 226th Place SE before moving to the new facility later this summer.
