MultiCare to Open Maple Valley Clinic March 30
Clinic Relocating from Kent's East Hill
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Todd Kelley (253) 403-1716
(TACOMA) – MultiCare Health System will soon open a new clinic in Maple Valley to better serve the growing community. The new clinic will open on March 30.
The MultiCare Maple Valley Clinic will be located at 23846 SE Kent-Kangley Road, Suite E-11, in Maple Valley. The phone numbers are (425) 413-1310 and (253) 372-7680.
The staff offers a full range of family-practice services. Medical staff includes three longstanding MultiCare providers:
- David A. Cline, MD, is a family practice physician. He is a graduate of Tulane University and Rush Medical College and completed his residency at Duke University Medical School.
- Craig DeSelms, MD, is a board-certified family practice physician and Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians. He is a graduate of Willamette University and the University of Oregon Medical School. Dr. DeSelms completed his residency at David Grant Medical Center in California.
- Constance Hood, PA-C, is a board-certified family practice physician assistant with an interest in emergency medicine. She is a graduate of Eastern Washington University and the University of Oklahoma.
“Maple Valley is one of the fastest growing communities in Washington State,” said Karen Graham, Director of Operations for MultiCare Medical Associates. “Between 2004 and 2006, the area saw 25.8% growth, which says to us that Maple Valley needed more local medical services.”
The MultiCare Maple Valley Clinic's office hours will be Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MultiCare also has clinics in Kent, Covington, Auburn and locations throughout Pierce County.
The new clinic houses the same services that have been available at the East Hill MultiCare Clinic for 20 years. That location will close March 26.
MultiCare Health System is one of the few health systems in the nation to offer a comprehensive electronic health record system. This system links all of a patient’s records throughout MultiCare’s hospitals and clinics, so it is available wherever a patient needs care.
Patients at the Maple Valley clinic can also make appointments, request prescription refills and view lab and imaging results online through MyMultiCare, a secure, web-based Internet connection.
MultiCare is a leading-edge, integrated health organization made up of four hospitals, numerous primary care and urgent care clinics, multi-specialty centers, Hospice and Home Health services, and many other services. A not-for-profit organization based in Tacoma, Washington since 1882, MultiCare has grown over the years in response to community needs. Today we are the area's largest provider of health care services, serving patients at 93 locations in Pierce, South King, Kitsap and Thurston counties.
