Harrison Medical Center and its medical group, Harrison HealthPartners, plans expansion to provide healthcare services on Bainbridge Island. The organization just completed a purchase agreement for a 2.5 acre property at the intersection of Madison Avenue and New Brooklyn, just off of highway #305.
“This represents our commitment to extend access to Harrison for the Bainbridge Island Community,” said Scott Bosch, President and CEO of Harrison Medical Center. “Right now, Bainbridge residents have the furthest to go for 24-hour a day healthcare services. When our center opens, it will be just minutes away.”
Harrison plans to break ground on the 13,000 square foot facility this spring. The location was selected because of its convenient access to other local services, as well as its proximity to area long term care facilities. Harrison’s Bainbridge location will feature 24-7 urgent care, and a medical clinic featuring a Harrison HealthPartners primary care clinic, along with other community-based specialty practice physicians.
“Our mission is to make a positive difference in people’s lives and that is why we’re bringing Harrison to Bainbridge,” said Adar Palis, Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative and Operating Officer, which spans leadership of Harrison HealthPartners. “Local residents need convenient access to exceptional healthcare and our goal is to do just that.”
Harrison’s Bainbridge facility architects will be Coates Design, with construction by Tim Ryan Construction, Inc. The clinic and urgent care offices are expected to be open by late winter of 2014.
