CHI Franciscan Health announced this week it will be opening a new primary care clinic in Bremerton.
An unoccupied commercial building at 4205 Kitsap Way will house the new doctors’ offices, which the organization hopes to open by summer 2020.
Regional president David Schultz said the facility will house a “robust” primary care clinic, to include a residency program in family medicine.
“We are dedicated to providing a comprehensive clinic for the residents of Bremerton to meet the growing need for quality health care,” Schultz said.
The clinic is part of an effort to “continue to expand access to care” in the region, Schultz said.
In 2016 the organization broke ground on new $500 million state-of-the-art facility in Silverdale, which will hold a 60,000 square foot cancer center, among other services.
CHI Franciscan Health is a subsidiary of Catholic Health Initiatives, a national healthcare nonprofit headquartered in Englewood, Colorado.
