After a slight delay, Kaiser Permanente has announced they’ve now opened their new medical center in the Ballard Blocks 2.
The Ballard Medical Center has primary care, pediatric, obstetric, chiropractic care, mental health, physical therapy, pharmacy, radiology, and lab services, all located on the fifth floor of the building (1401 NW 46th St).
“This clinic was built to meet the needs of Ballard and nearby neighborhoods,” Dr. Hannah Burdge, Chief of the Ballard Medical Center said in a statement about the opening. “As a resident of this neighborhood, I’m so proud to be part of the team bringing Kaiser Permanente medicine to this community, to serve current and welcome new members.”
Some of the features at the new clinic include a chiropractor on staff, an advanced medical assistant to help provide health and wellness coaching, and a “virtual-medicine space,” which allows a clinic provider to resolve patient requests in real time, via phone, email, or their Care Chat system.
The clinic allows for walk-ins — scheduled appointments can be made on their online system or by phone (206-297-5360).
