Harrison Medical Center buys land on Bainbridge Island for new 13,000-square foot facility

Harrison Medical Center has purchased land near Highway 305 and Madison Avenue/New Brooklyn Road with plans to put an urgent care clinic on the property.

Scott Bosch, president and CEO of Harrison Medical Center, made the announcement at a thank-you gathering hosted by the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce for its sponsors Tuesday evening at Wing Point Country Club.

Rex Oliver, chamber president, said Bosch announced that the hospital had completed negotiations on a land sale.

"They've purchased the land; they are in planning stages to build a facility with 13,000 square feet," Oliver said.

"They hope to break ground in June and open it sometime in early 2014," he said.

The facility will offer urgent care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

"It's a good-sized clinic," Oliver added. "Once completed, it will create 50 full-time employee positions."

Officials with Harrison Medical Center could not be reached for comment early Wednesday. An official announcement on the land purchase is expected Thursday.

The news received an enthusiastic reception at the meeting, Oliver said.

"Everybody was very pleased. It's a win-win situation. We know that Harrison's reputation is very good," Oliver said.

He also noted the medical center's recent news of an affiliation with Franciscan Health System, based in Tacoma, which would expand services and create a larger, integrated health system with nearly 11,000 employees.
