PacMed Canyon Park Celebrates 5th Anniversary


Before Pacific Medical Centers opened its Canyon Park clinic five years ago, its team committed to this mission: to provide respectful, high-quality, patient-focused healthcare to each person and to the communities we serve. Today, that sense of caring extends beyond the walls of the Canyon Park facility. 


For example, you might see a PacMed pediatrician speaking to local preschool students about the importance of good hand hygiene. Or encounter a PacMed provider at a nearby senior center addressing the unique health concerns of older adults.


"It really does take a village, and our family of employees enjoys doing its part to help Bothell be the best it can be," says Dr. Jody Rhoades, medical director, PacMed Canyon Park. "Our team has become a family that truly has the health and wellbeing of all our patients at heart."

 Community News & Announcements: Shout Out!
Shout OutMarlin Gabbert, of Gabbert Architects Planners, has devoted his life to constructing a better Bothell. He designed our building in 2005. When it came time for expansion in 2015, we turned to him. He 'gets' our needs and with local knowledge he helps us get it done. Evergreen Church and Bothell are better because of Gabbert Architects.
