Lahai Health (formerly Puget Sound Christian Clinic) is a clinic providing health care to underserved individuals and families in King and Snohomish Counties. Our services include integrated and comprehensive medical, dental, and mental health counseling.
Today, more than half a million individuals in Washington State do not have access to adequate health, dental, or counseling care. We know that having access to direct care services is essential to the well-being and improved quality of life for everyone. Medical, dental, and mental health are difficult services to access for the vulnerable in our communities. Since 2003 we have been able to provide quality and compassionate healthcare through a dedicated network of volunteers, donors, and community partners — motivated to show Christ’s love through care to all under-served people.
With an established practice and diverse base of staff and volunteers, Lahai Health is more impassioned than ever to keep making a difference by providing access to healthcare. Lahai Health provides care through each of our services that is intentionally modeled to be holistic and individualized for every patient that walks through our doors. While we meet immediate healthcare needs of each person, our long-term goal is to care for the whole individual, meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each patient.
