UW Neighborhood Clinics is a network of community-based clinics located throughout the Puget Sound region. The clinics provide a wide spectrum of primary care and secondary care services, from pediatrics to geriatrics using the medical home model. Ancillary services include on-site laboratories, digital radiology facilities and nutrition services. The clinics offer primary care services six days a week, with urgent care services available at select locations. Additional offerings include convenient hours with evening and same day appointments available and online access to personal health information through UW Medicine eCare. Registered
eCare users can confidentially email their care team, schedule and cancel appointments, request prescription refills, view their medical history and check lab results.
The clinics have earned seven consecutive excellent accreditation scores for meeting nationally recognized standards of high-quality health care from the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care and have been awarded recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance Patient-Centered Medical Home Program. The clinics have also received two leadership awards from the health insurer Premera Blue Cross for continued participation and support in the Premera Quality Score Card program.
