24/7 Emergency Care Available!
The MultiCare Covington Medical Center has added 24/7 emergency care to the umbrella of primary and specialty care we currently offer the community.
Our new 24,000-square-foot Emergency Department, which adjoins the Covington Medical Center at 17700 S.E. 272nd St. in Covington, offers the following features:
Total of 19 treatment rooms, four of which are specialized for children, with a child-friendly separate waiting area.
Advanced imaging services located in the Emergency Department, including digital X-ray, CT and ultrasound, allowing for faster diagnostic procedures.
An ambulance bay large enough to handle four ambulances at a time, and a Rural Metro Ambulance onsite 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist with timely transfers for patients.
Wi-Fi internet access and separate family waiting area with Kidzpace activity games.
A warm and soothing ambience, with a modern, Northwest theme and plenty of natural light.
Because the new Emergency Department is part of MultiCare Health System, it is also linked to MultiCare’s four South Sound hospitals and dozens of clinics by our system-wide electronic health records. That means wherever you’re treated in the MultiCare system, your caregivers will have instant access to your electronic health record, including your health history and such vital information as your allergies or any prescription medications you may be taking.

COVINGTON EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT GROUND BREAKING
MultiCare broke ground on the new Covington Emergency Department on Wednesday, November 10, 2010.
The new freestanding Emergency Department, scheduled for completion in early 2012, will change the health care experience of residents in South King County.
“Having an Emergency Department in Covington will greatly improve the care patients receive,” said Hugh Kodama, Administrator for the MultiCare Covington Clinic. “We can take care of many of their needs right in our community, and patients will be connected to MultiCare’s network of specialists in King and Pierce counties. We are committed to bringing new health care options to residents inthis area.”
This is the first phase in MultiCare’s expansion plans at the Covington Clinic. MultiCare is also planning to build a 58-bed hospital adjacent to the clinic.
Covington Emergency Department Milestone Reached
Signatures from MultiCare employees and City of Covington staff on the final steel support beam become part of MultiCare’s historyThe final steel support beam for the new MultiCare Covington Emergency Department was readied for placement at a “topping off” ceremony held Friday, Sept. 16.
Hosted by Sellen Construction, the ceremony included the opportunity for MultiCare employees to sign the specially decorated red, white and blue beam. Covington Mayor Margaret Harto, City Manager Derek Matheson, Councilmember Wayne Snoey and other city staff also attended and signed the beam.
The beam will not be a visible part of the building once construction is complete, but the signatures will forever be part of the MultiCare Covington Emergency Department.
