Quality, personalized care doesn’t happen by chance. It takes a team of health care professionals working together to improve patient outcomes and decrease costs. That’s what you’ll find at The Polyclinic, starting with how easy it is to refer a patient to us. 

As one of the largest multispecialty clinics in the Puget Sound area, chances are we have the physicians and resources your patient needs. We look forward to working with you to care for your patient.

We’re also committed to helping you and your patients through our managed care organizations. Each focuses on shaping health care delivery and lowering costs through proven care strategies, preferred treatment methods and cost-effective management.
