Community

Olympia, with a population of 46,478, is the capital of Washington State. Economically fueled by state government, Olympia enjoys the benefits of a stable work force, engaged and educated community, and well-supported school system. Historic downtown Olympia offers a variety of eclectic shopping and dining experiences, while Olympia's westside is a regional shopping destination at numerous national brand stores and the auto mall. Olympia's strategic geographic location along Interstate 5 at the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula, puts one within two hours or less of regional recreational attractions - from hiking and skiing in the mountains to beachcombing along ocean shores.

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.
