The High-Quality Care You Deserve
You have many options when it comes to healthcare providers in Washington state — everything from large national health systems that can dictate how providers deliver care, to independent provider offices that decide for themselves how they offer patient care.
Independent provider clinics have chosen to operate outside larger corporatized medical systems. By staying local and independent, providers are better able to:
Put patient care first, making their patients’ health their top priority.
Spend more time with patients, which can lead to better outcomes.
Refer their patients to the right specialist for their needs, even outside a specific healthcare system.
See patients sooner, with better appointment options.
