DelBene Delivers $2M for HealthPoint’s New Redmond Health Center

Today, Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (WA-01) presented HealthPoint with a $2 million check for its new Redmond Health Center. DelBene secured the investment in the FY23 federal omnibus funding package.

HealthPoint’s new Redmond facility will provide quality primary health and dental care to low-income members of the community who often experience barriers to care. It will be located at the Together Center, a mixed-use affordable housing and human services campus that will also provide job training, senior services, transportation, advocacy services, and counseling.

“Many members of our community do not have access to the basic health and dental care they need to thrive. That is why I am thrilled to have secured $2 million for HealthPoint’s new health center in Redmond, said DelBene.” “This investment will help break down barriers to care and will tie in with the broader array of housing, counseling, and transportation services at the Together Center.”

“Creating urgently needed affordable homes while providing essential services and resources that individuals and families need to succeed is at the core of the new Together Center,” said Redmond Mayor Angela Birney. “We are grateful for Congresswoman DelBene’s ongoing collaboration and support in securing funding for projects that improve the lives of Redmond and Eastside residents.”

"HealthPoint is proud to offer health services at the new Together Center, a place where the health of community members is a priority. Our teams of doctors, dentists, and counselors will work with patients to improve their health, said HealthPoint CEO Lisa Yohalem. “We are grateful to have Congresswomen DelBene as a partner in assuring thousands of Eastside residents have access to quality health services."

“Together Center is thrilled to continue our 30-year partnership with HealthPoint as the anchor provider partner at our visionary new human services hub and affordable housing campus in downtown Redmond, WA,” said Together Center CEO Kim Sarnecki. “The success of this innovative project is being made possible by leveraging nonprofit-owned land and the infusion of investments and partnership by nonprofits, cities, county, state, federal and private philanthropic donors.”

DelBene secured $19.4 million for 15 community projects across Washington’s 1st Congressional District. Projects came directly from non-profit, city, county, Tribal, and state entities, and all funding secured was done in collaboration with project sponsors.
