Although ground was broken way back in December 2020, progress is finally becoming apparent on the Veterans Administration’s new $10 million, 26,000-square foot community-based outpatient clinic in Everett.

The clinic is located at the corner of Mukilteo Blvd. and Olympic Blvd. (220 Olympic Blvd.) on the site of a long-since, nearly abandoned, shopping center.

The new community-based outpatient clinic in Everett is expected to bring accessible health care and services closer to nearly 8,000 North Sound Veterans. Services will include primary care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, diagnostic imaging (MRI, ultrasound, Echo and CT), social work, mental health, nutrition, pharmacy specialist, and readjustment counseling services.

The clinic is expected to open in mid-2022.
