Group Health Bellevue Medical Center
Bellevue, Washington
The new Group Health Bellevue Medical Center is the flagship facility serving the Group Health membership in east King County. Working with senior Group Health team members, the Ellerbe Becket-NAC Architecture team developed a modular clinic design that provides daily flexibility in clinical assignment, clarity in patient treatment, and easy conversion to meet future needs. Based on a large universal exam room designed to strengthen the connection between patient and staff, the clinic module has been adopted as the standard for all future Group Health development. The 200,000-square-foot Group Health Bellevue Medical Center houses outpatient practices for Group Health physicians in more than 20 specialty areas, including cardiology, orthopedics, sports medicine, physical therapy, ophthalmology, dermatology, oncology, and women’s health. The center also features a 26,000-square-foot ambulatory surgery center and provides diagnostic imaging, laboratory and pharmacy services as well as a retail store for home medical products. Located on the Overlake Hospital Medical Center campus, Group Health’s Bellevue Medical Center has a direct pedestrian tunnel connection to the new 104-bed Overlake South Tower inpatient facility and emergency department for Group Health members requiring inpatient or emergency care. Parking is provided for 680 cars in a four-story garage below the building.
