UW Medicine is very excited to announce the opening of our first clinic in Thurston County. The UW Neighborhood Olympia Clinic is now open at 3525 Ensign Road N.E., Suite B, in Olympia. Appointments can be made by calling 360-507-9100.
A variety of primary care services are available at the new clinic, including family medicine, acute illness and injury care, women’s healthcare, preventive medicine, medical screening and chronic disease management. Convenient same-day primary care appointments, even on Saturdays, are available as well as an on-site lab and x-ray services. Urgent care clinic services will be available in the spring.
Meet our clinic team
Three seasoned providers are on our clinical staff: Dr. Eunice Chen comes to our Olympia clinic via Stanford where she was in practice at the Stanford School of Medicine. Dr. Hollie Matthews grew up in southwest Washington and is looking forward to practicing near family and friends after several years at Samaritan Healthcare in Moses Lake, Washington. And Theresa Duggan, ARNP, joins our Olympia clinic via Rochester, Washington, near Centralia, where she was seeing patients at the Providence Rochester Family Medicine Clinic.
“I’m very excited to be moving back to the South Sound area,” says Dr. Matthews. “I grew up in Winlock, graduated from Winlock High School, and now I have an opportunity to give back to a community that has given me so much. Joining the UW Neighborhood Olympia Clinic gives me the opportunity to provide quality care and expanded services into the South Sound, as well as help my friends and neighbors navigate a larger system when needed. Plus I get to continue to work with medical students from the UW School of Medicine, which is one of my passions.”
Get to know UW Medicine
You are most likely familiar with UW Medicine’s patient care, teaching and research mission to improve the help of the public. However, you may not realize we are comprised of eight entities including four hospitals: Harborview Medical Center, Northwest Hospital & Medical Center, Valley Medical Center, and UW Medical Center, 12 UW Neighborhood Clinics, a physician practice called UW Physicians, UW School of Medicine and Airlift Northwest.
We are a partner in the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance with Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and we have a strong relationship with Seattle Children’s. The majority of the physicians practicing at Children’s have faculty appointments at the UW. Our comprehensive system gives you access to healthcare services across a broad spectrum of care—from primary care to care for more complex medical needs including trauma and burn care, cancer care, cardiac care, neonatal intensive care and much more.
Locally, we have a strategic collaboration with Capital Medical Center, which means we are working together to ensure our patients have seamless access to specialty care. Capital Medical Center has provided the space for our new clinic.
Discover coordinated care
As a healthcare system, our philosophy behind primary care is “comprehensive coordinated care.” Our healthcare professionals and staff work as a team to ensure our patients have the information they need to receive the care that best meets their needs, regardless of where that care is delivered.
We look forward to being a part of the greater Olympia community, getting to know you and your family, and providing you with compassionate care at all stages of your life.
Help us celebrate our new home
Please join us for an Open House celebration at the new clinic on Saturday, January 9, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. It will be a great opportunity to meet our providers and tour the clinic. Members of the Husky Marching Band and Harry the Husky will be there. We’ll be offering activities for your whole family.
