One Medical recently opened offices in Bellevue’s Lincoln Square South.
The membership-based primary care practice is on a mission to transform health care after opening 12 offices in 2016 and another five already in 2017. In May, One Medical opened a Downtown Seattle location. With the opening of the Bellevue location, they’re closer to their goal of providing care to the entire 3.8 million residents of the greater Seattle metro.
Founder and CEO, Tom Lee graduated from the University of Washington School of Medicine and, after a few early frustrating experiences practicing medicine, he was motivated by his desire to create a transformative new primary care model – one that puts the patient at the center of care, while allowing doctors to practice primary care the way it was intended.
At One Medical, that manifests with longer and same-day appointments that start on time; convenient, comfortable offices and on-site labs; tech tools like virtual care offerings; and intelligent, empathetic providers who develop lasting relationships with their patients and partner with them to achieve the best health outcomes. When practiced right, primary care is one of the most effective and lowest-cost types of health care. We’ve built a patient-centered, technology-enabled practice that helps us attract world-class physicians passionate about making a difference with their patients, because they’re able to deliver care in a more fulfilling, effective way.
One Medical works closely with clinicians on office design to create environments that are relaxing and comfortable – which helps create more effective, meaningful appointments. They also partner with local artists to reflect the local culture and environment.
Creating Healthier a Workforce
One Medical also enables companies to offer add primary care services as a health benefit for their employees. In less than three years, more than 1,000 employers have partnered with them to invest in the health of their workforce. Several companies in Seattle and Bellevue have already added One Medical to their health benefits packages as founding enterprise members. These companies are showing their commitment to helping their workforce stay healthier with improved access to preventive medicine and urgent care – both of which help reduce sick days. Because our offices are conveniently located and appointments start on time, it’s easy for employees to make time for their health.
The Membership Model
As a membership-based primary care practice, their low annual fee gives members access to their suite of services rarely covered by insurance, including multiple options for virtual care, in-app prescription renewals, and other time- and money-saving features. These unique benefits help members forge deeper relationships with their primary care providers, while also ensuring fast delivery of care.
One Medical’s Bellevue location is at 10400 NE Fourth Street Ste. 2250.
