Seattle is a seaport city and the seat of King County. With an estimated 686,800 residents, Seattle is the largest city in both the state of Washington and the Pacific Northwest region of North America. The city is situated on an isthmus between Puget Sound and Lake Washington. A major gateway for trade with Asia, Seattle is the fourth-largest port in North America in terms of container handling as of 2015. Named by Kiplinger's as one of the "10 Best Cities for the Next Decade," the Seattle metropolitan region is a great place to live, visit and do business. It's home to some of the most recognizable global companies including Amazon, Boeing, Microsoft, Starbucks, Costco, Nordstrom, REI, and Alaska Airlines. Whether you're looking for economic opportunity, cultural events, or educational excellence, you'll find it--and much more--in Seattle.
We are dedicated to building lifetime relationships with peers and patients in Washington State's richly diverse communities. Many know the Pacific Northwest as an attractive tourist destination with beautiful scenery, friendly people, and a host of cultural and recreational opportunities. These elements, and others, make Washington an excellent place to live.
