Community

Des Moines, with a population of 31,000, is located on the east shore of Puget Sound, approximately halfway between the major cities of Seattle and Tacoma. The city is bordered by the suburbs of Federal Way to the south, Kent to the east, SeaTac to the northeast, Burien to the north, and Normandy Park to the northwest. It is home to Saltwater State Park, the most-used State Park on the Sound, a 838-berth full service marina, Highline College, many quaint waterfront restaurants, and is only two miles from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

Tacoma, locally referred to as “T-Town”, is a mid-sized urban port city and the seat of Pierce County. The city is on Washington's Puget Sound, 32 miles southwest of Seattle, 31 miles northeast of Olympia, and 58 miles northwest of Mt. Rainier National Park. With a population of 198,397, Tacoma is the second-largest city in the Puget Sound area and the third largest in the state. Tacoma is home to a vibrant, creative community of writers, artists and musicians, photographers, filmmakers, passionate entrepreneurs and small business owners. It also serves as a base for large companies like State Farm, BNY Mellon, Columbia Bank and Key Bank. Drawing families to its charming neighborhoods with big city amenities, true urbanites are drawn to downtown Tacoma for its competitively priced living spaces with sweeping mountain, city and water views.

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.
