Although construction is just 25 percent complete, Seattle Children's held a site dedication ceremony last week for its $70 million clinic and surgery center near Overlake Hospital in Bellevue. As part of the ceremony, kids added their painted handprints to the clinic's entrance columns.
The LEED silver clinic is being built on 6.6 acres at 1500 116th Ave. N.E.
Sellen Construction, the general contractor, is working on the underground parking garage for the 75,000-square-foot concrete building. Excavation was recently completed by Hos Brothers, while shoring was handled by Malcolm Drilling Co.
When it opens in the summer of 2010, the two-story medical center will offer outpatient surgery, urgent care and more than 15 clinics ranging from sports medicine to general surgery, supported by radiology, a pharmacy, lab and sports therapy gym.
Children's operates a pediatric specialty clinic at Overlake Hospital. Most of the services offered there will be transferred to the new clinic. The remaining services will continue to be offered at Overlake after the new clinic opens.
Officials anticipate more than 63,000 visits to the new clinic in 2010. Between 85 and 130 new jobs will be created there.
