MultiCare has proudly provided health care services to the people of Kent and the surrounding communities for the past 25 years. It has been an honor to be a part of this vibrant, diverse community and to help address the health needs of the individuals and families who call this area home.
So, we couldn't be more excited to have the opportunity to open a brand new, 36,000-square-foot comprehensive health clinic in Kent that will allow us meet the growing needs of this region.
This state-of-the-art facility is being built just across the street from our current, aging building. When it opens for patient care in early 2019, your new Kent Clinic will include:
Once the new facility is up and running, the old clinic building will be taken down to make space for parking.
To erect the new MultiCare Kent Clinic facility, Abbott Construction employed a “tilt-up” process, by which the building’s walls are poured directly at the jobsite in large slabs of concrete called tilt-up panels. These panels are then raised into position around the building’s perimeter to form the exterior walls.
This is the first time MultiCare has used this type of construction for one of its facilities. Tilt-up construction allows contactors to build a wide-range of commercial buildings more quickly and with lower construction costs than traditional masonry building projects.
