Just last year, Skyway welcomed its first full-service health clinic in decades: HealthPoint at the Renton Area Youth & Family Services‘ (RAYS) Cynthia A. Green Family Center, located at 12704 76th Avenue South. But many neighbors still don’t realize we have such a great resource right in our own backyard!
HealthPoint’s primary goal is to provide health care services to the local community in a comfortable, neighborhood-based setting, and patients can visit for services like wellness checks, care of chronic illnesses, sick visits, sports physicals, and immunizations.
WHCA was thrilled to attend their Grand Opening Celebration on April 21st, 2018, where the community cheered the much needed addition to the neighborhood.
HealthPoint isn’t just located within the RAYS Family Center building, they also work closely with RAYS and can connect patients to mental health counseling and other community resources as well.
While the clinic is only open on Mondays and Thursdays from 8am to 5pm, walk-in appointments are available (although it’s a good idea to call ahead and schedule an appointment at 206-839-3540).
All patients are welcome, with or without insurance. Those without insurance can apply for a sliding-scale program.
