MultiCare Medical Associates announced the opening of a new 3,600-square-foot primary care clinic in Puyallup. The new facility provides patients in east Pierce County with increased access to care providers treating common family medical conditions including maternity care. 

The new clinic, called MultiCare Family Medicine & Maternity Care, is located at 220 15th Ave. SE, Suite B, in Puyallup. It will initially staff two family medicine obstetricians and grow to six full-time providers, according to a press release. The facility is located near MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital and provides patients of the new clinic with nearby access to lab and imaging services, pharmacy and other medical specialists.

“Our goal is to become a trusted medical home-base for families living in the Puyallup and east Pierce County areas,” said Dr. Veronica Hooper, physician executive of Primary Care at MultiCare, in the press release. “We’re not only dedicated to creating the safest possible care environment for patients on-site, but also making virtual appointments available for those who don’t require in-person care.”

MultiCare currently operates more than 30 primary care clinics in communities across the South Puget Sound region.
