Residents of Burien and southeastern King County have a new destination for health care at CHI Franciscan Health’s new Franciscan Medical Pavilion – Highline.

This state-of-the art facility includes prompt care, primary care for infants through adults, women’s health services, and many additional and needed services.

“Our new medical pavilion meets the demands of our patients’ busy lifestyles and hosts a full spectrum of comprehensive outpatient services in one convenient location – a true patient destination center,” said Chief Executive Officer Ketul J. Patel, with CHI Franciscan Health. “We are pleased to provide an entry point for much-needed health services for people in South King County.”

The pavilion is located at 16045 1st Ave. S. in Burien, and is minutes from Highline Medical Center, also a part of CHI Franciscan.

Services at the new 48,000 square foot pavilion include Franciscan Prompt Care, open seven days a week for walk-in care and no appointment needed; Franciscan Medical Clinic – Burien for primary and specialty care; Franciscan Women’s Health Associates – Burien for obstetrics, midwifery, gynecology and urogynecology; Franciscan Breast Center – Burien with 3D mammography, breast ultrasound, breast biopsy and bone density exams; as well as laboratory, imaging services and free on-site parking. In June, urogynecology services are expected to open.

“This new medical pavilion demonstrates CHI Franciscan’s commitment to providing our Highline-area patients with high quality care and services in one location close to home,” said Michael Marshall, MD, president and chief medical officer, CHI Franciscan Health’s Franciscan Medical Group. “We’ve designed this facility with the patient in mind as a one-stop shop for all their health care needs.”

As part of CHI Franciscan strategic planning, the health care system identified the Burien area as one that would benefit from centralized health care services in a clinic setting outside of a hospital. This pavilion will provide area residents with the most comprehensive health care clinic in Burien.

ZGF Architects designed the new pavilion, and GLY Construction served as the project’s general contractor.
