The Down Syndrome Program at Virginia Mason is turning one!
A message from Rebecca Partridge MD, Virginia Mason Pediatrics:
In April 2013, Virginia Mason Pediatrics in Issaquah launched the first and only program in Washington focused on improving the health and development of children with Down syndrome and their families. Thanks to you, our inaugural year in Issaquah has been a success, and we are delighted to be making an impact in the lives of children with Down syndrome as well as our community.
To celebrate, we are excited to announce expansion of our services to include Seattle!
On select Thursdays starting in April, we will be offering services at the new Virginia Mason University Village Medical Clinic.
