This recognition comes at an exciting time for AxessPointe. The organization recently completed a new facility in Kent at 143 Gougler Ave. This site is much larger than the previous location and allows for more patients to be seen. Along with the new building in Kent, AxessPointe’s Arlington location is currently undergoing an extensive remodeling process that will expand the site’s footprint. All of this gives AxessPointe the opportunity to continue to serve its mission to provide a quality, affordable and compassionate health home for – every patient, every time- in all communities.
