We’re excited about the progress the Seattle Indian Health Board (SIHB) is making towards opening their new inpatient substance use disorder treatment center on Vashon Island. SIHB, a nationally recognized organization that provides healthcare services for urban Native Americans, purchased the property for $11 million on March 31, 2023.
The Health Board plans to transform the VCC site into a 92-bed inpatient treatment center for substance abuse disorders, a critical step towards re-opening and expanding its Thunderbird Treatment Center, which had closed in 2019. The facility’s program will combine traditional Indian medicine and cutting-edge therapeutic programs, offering a powerful alternative to conventional treatment models.
We’re proud to have played a role in this important transaction and to help the SIHB achieve its goal of providing exceptional healthcare services to its relatives and the broader community.
