Highlights | New Eastside clinic

  • Preventive and diagnostic services are available.

UW Medicine Primary Care at Kirkland opens on Oct. 24, bringing comprehensive care directly to patients living and working on the Eastside.

The 11,588-square-foot clinic will deliver more preventive and diagnostic services to Kirkland-area communities.

“This is a great expansion of primary care to patient groups we haven’t been able to fully serve before,” says Pranika Laing, UW Medicine interim associate vice president for primary care and population health.

A commitment to comprehensive care

The new primary care clinic in Kirkland is located between UW Medicine’s Woodinville and Factoria clinics. It will serve patients of all ages, from newborns to older adults. The new clinic underscores UW Medicine’s investment in building long-standing relationships with patients.

“Studies show that places with more primary care providers have a healthier population,” says Adewunmi Nuga, MD, PhD, the clinic’s medical director. “The family physician or family provider gets to know you well. So, we need robust primary care available to everyone.”

The clinic offers:

  • Laboratory and radiology services
  • Acute and chronic illness care
  • Injury care
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Preventive care (routine check-ups, health screenings, vaccinations)

The clinic is only one part of UW Medicine’s primary care expansion. Urgent Care at Kirkland is scheduled to open in 2024.

Convenient, accessible services

Primary Care at Kirkland is located in the Jewel Building at 620 Kirkland Way, three blocks from the Kirkland Transit Center. Patients in Eastside neighborhoods also have easy access from I-405 and SR-520. Patients who arrive by car can park for free onsite.

The clinic accepts most major insurance plans, including commercial plans, government programs and Medicare Advantage. In-person and telemedicine appointments are available during regular clinic hours: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday. On-demand virtual visits are available every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Ultimately, Laing says, the clinic brings UW Medicine’s expertise and high-quality care to the patient’s doorstep.

“We realize people want access to primary care, and this new clinic gives them access to our larger system,” she says. “This expansion allows people to become patients of UW Medicine and receive care closer to home.”
