Sound Opens New Location in Bellevue

Driven by a commitment to improving access for its clients and after years of planning, Sound recently opened its new location in Bellevue. The 10,000 square foot facility is more centrally located at 13555 Bel-Red Road and features 25 treatment rooms which will serve adults, children and families. The new location is more conveniently located near public transit, the most common form of transportation used by Sound clients.  

As part of the strategic move, Sound also closed its old North Creek and Rainbow Creek locations, with staff and clients transitioning to the new Bel-Red location.

“This move was in the best interest of our clients,” says Sound President & CEO Patrick Evans. “We already knew that the North Creek and Rainbow Creek locations, though familiar, simply were not easy for our clients to get to. As we also work to meet growing community need, a more central location just made more sense. This is a significant step toward delivering quality healthcare to our community. We are very much looking forward to both serving our current clients and meeting growing demand for our services.”

The location will also be the home site for Sound’s new Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC). Sound was recently selected as the only provider in King County for the grant –and one of only seven in the state. To learn more, read our story here.

These two announcements represent the most recent developments in Sound’s larger strategy to transform itself post-Covid and design a more sustainable and viable healthcare business. In August, Sound consolidated its Wallingford and Northgate facilities, creating more streamlined operations, while continuing to serve clients. In mid-September, Sound completed the sale of Cascade Hall, a 64-bed residential treatment facility, to King County, due to unsustainable funding models. The organization is also reconfiguring its Primary Care practice and continues to evaluate other lines of business that are no longer sustainable in the current funding and reimbursement environment.

“Sound is deeply committed to thriving during these unprecedented times,” adds Evans. “And these changes are essential to ensure that we can continue our pledge to serve the thousands of vulnerable people and the community at large, who depend on us. It is critical that we stabilize our operations so that we can be well positioned to address the growing mental health and addiction needs in our community as well.”
