We’re excited to welcome a new HealthPoint healthcare clinic to the Sunset area on Monday.

We're also excited that HealthPoint, a leader in providing affordable, quality healthcare for all ages, will run the clinic. My thanks to HealthPoint President & CEO Lisa Yohalem and her staff for helping make this clinic possible.

Sunset residents will have access to medical and behavioral health care, nutrition education, family planning services, treatment and management of chronic diseases such as diabetes and more. HealthPoint offers a sliding-scale fee to make care affordable regardless of income. Many staff are bi-lingual and can assist with signing up for insurance. If needed, interpreters are also available.

The new clinic is housed in the new Sunset Neighborhood Center, formerly the Renton Highlands Library, 2902 NE 12th Street Suite #102, Renton, WA, 98056. The center results from our partnership with HealthPoint, Renton Housing Authority, St. Vincent de Paul, Valley Cities, and Neighborhood House. It is also one of several projects currently under construction in the Sunset area.

Soon we'll open Phase 2 of Sunset Neighborhood Park, a 3.2-acre park situated near the new library and housing. Renton Housing Authority is refurbishing three senior housing properties and building Sunset Oaks, a new affordable housing project. Homestead Community Land Trust is building Willowcrest Townhomes, 12 affordable units set for completion next summer.

Partnerships like those mentioned and support from the state legislature have allowed us to continue transforming the Sunset area into a beautiful new livable neighborhood with investment opportunities.
