Nurse Manager Amber Bertels talks to Congressman Larsen as work continues at the new Everett VA Clinic.

In what will be a big deal for the 30,000 Veterans who live within a 30-minute drive, the new Everett Community-Based Outpatient Clinic is now accepting appointments to see patients in-person starting September 19th.

The new $10 million, 28,000 square foot clinic is located at 220 Olympic Boulevard in Everett, Washington.

We had a chance today to get a sneak peek and tagged along with Congressman Rick Larsen for a brief tour.

Services to be provided include:

  • Primary Care (in-clinic, home-based & homeless)
  • Radiology (CT, echocardiogram, MRI, ultrasound)
  • Laboratory services
  • Behavioral health
  • Clinical pharmacy specialists
  • Nutrition
  • Social work
  • Virtual Care (phone and video)
  •  
    At full capacity the clinic in Everett will have 32 exam rooms. Of those, two are dedicated for women’s health and one is a bariatric procedure room.

    Initially, three Patient Aligned Care Teams will support 3,000 enrolled patients with that number expected to double by early 2023.

    The Clinic will be a training site for Washington State University’s Medical Program with four WSU interns based here to start with that number growing by four each year.

    The VA will also run VA Supportive Housing Services at the Everett site and establish a Community Resource and Referral Center.

    While in-person appointments won’t happen until September 19th the public is invited to the formal grand opening ceremony on Tuesday August 30th at 10 AM with Senator Patty Murray and tours will be available.

    Congressman Larsen told us after the tour, “With the number of veterans in the north Puget Sound it is great to see the VA is responding, we know the demand for service is there and it is great to see supply for services increasing in the north Sound.”

    Veterans who are interested in getting or transferring primary care in Everett should contact their Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT) directly by phone or My HealtheVet as well as contact VA Puget Sound’s call center at 800-329-8387.
