Overlake Hospital Medical Center has acquired Issaquah Medical Group, now named Overlake Medical Clinics Gilman. As part of the acquisition, Overlake has added two primary physicians and an advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP) to its staff.

The new clinic is located at 450 NW Gilman Blvd., Suite 201 in Issaquah.

“One of our main goals at Overlake is to provide our patients with the most convenient and cost-effective medical care possible,” said Craig Hendrickson, Overlake’s CEO. “The addition of Overlake Medical Clinics Gilman to our network means that we now have seven medical clinics throughout the Eastside, with two more opening in Redmond in 2012.”

The primary focus of the network of Overlake Medical Clinics is to promote health and wellness. Each clinic is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and is designed to provide patients with short wait times and same-day appointments.

Joining the Overlake staff in Issaquah will be Elizabeth Lehmann-Taylor, MD, John Henn, DO, and Keya Chisholm, ARNP.

Lehmann-Taylor received her medical degree from the University of Washington and has served the Issaquah community since 1974.

Henn studied at Drake University and later graduated from Des Moines University Medical School in 1969. He is certified in Family Practice and spent 30 years serving the Kent community before moving to Issaquah.

Chisholm also graduated from the University of Washington, but received her Master of Science in Nursing from Pacific Lutheran University.

Overlake operates six other primary care clinics throughout the Eastside, including one on the hospital campus. The other primary care clinics are located in downtown Bellevue, Kirkland and Issaquah. There are also senior health centers in Bellevue and Mercer Island.

Two more openings are planned for Redmond in January of 2012, including an adult family medicine clinic at Redmond Town Center and an Urgent Care Clinic on Redmond Way. Those will take the Overlake Medical Clinics network to nine altogether.

Overlake Hospital Medical Center is a nonprofit, non-tax-supported regional medical center. The hospital is licensed for 349 beds and was the first Level III trauma service on the Eastside.
