Bellevue is the fifth largest city in Washington, with a population of more than 134,000. The city spans more than 31 square miles between Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish and is a short drive from the Cascade Mountains. It is the high-tech and retail center of the Eastside, with more than 130,000 jobs and a downtown skyline of gleaming high-rises. Although business booms downtown, much of Bellevue retains a small-town feel with thriving, woodsy neighborhoods, nearly 100 beautiful parks, a vast network of trails, top schools and a vibrant economy. Bellevue is routinely ranked among the best mid-sized cities in the country (Livability.com and 24/7 Wall Street). The population is becoming more diverse - according to the most recent census, minorities constituted 41 percent of Bellevue's population and more than 50 languages are now spoken by children in Bellevue public schools.
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.
