More than 15 Kadlec services will moved into the 66,237-square-foot building that will provide a large range of services. The building will include a demonstration kitchen, an indoor walking path and flexible meeting areas for events and classes.
Kadlec services that will be moved to the building include: cardiac rehabilitation; pulmonary rehabilitation; central scheduling; Coumadin management services; diabetes education; genetic counseling; Health Ages; neurodiagnostics; the Neurological Resource Center; nutrition counseling services; occupational therapy; patient financial services; physical therapy; pulmonary function lab; speech therapy; wound care; and community education.
The reconstruction project, which also created a 4,652-square-foot mezzanine space for the Healthplex call center and electrical systems, cost approximately $11.9 million. That includes the cost of creating the Washington State University School of Nursing, which occupies about 10,000 square feet of space.
Bouten Construction was the general contractor for the reconstruction project, which was designed by TGB Architects of Edmonds.
