The Laurelhurst Community Club (LCC) published this information on their most recent newsletter:

Children’s to Begin Next Building Phases

LCC members of Seattle Children’s Standing Committee – Brian McMullen, Jeannie Hale, Stan Sorcher and Colleen McAleer – attended a September 22 meeting where the SCH team presented plans for upcoming developments.
CEO Jeff Sperring, M.D., who has been there for a year, is getting up to speed and is planning to make changes. One of their new “brilliant goals is to bring medicine closer to where they live” – a suggestion LCC made six years ago! SCH is finally expanding north into Everett – a 35,000 s.f. multi-specialty clinic and urgent care facility on the Providence Everett Colby campus opening in 2018. The new Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic 2.0 will service families, approximately 35,000 s.f. with room to grow, and may open in 2020 or 2021. SCH is currently looking for a site from Rainier Valley to Kent. SCH Bellevue operations are also very full.
Building Cure, a new cancer drug infusion center, will be built downtown next to their research building. This facility will manufacturer SCH’s unique, successful infusion products, tailored for each patient. Underground parking will be included.
The newest building in Laurelhurst will be a 293,000 s.f. addition to the campus. Named the Forest B Building, it will be located on an existing surface parking lot at an angle to Building Hope, the newest structure. Forest B will house a Hematology/Oncology clinic and infusion center along with 10 new operating rooms. Three floors of parking (241 stalls) will be added under the new building. The hospital cafeteria also will move to the lower level of the Forest B Building, closest to NE 45th Street. 
The new front entrance of the hospital will be on 40th Ave NE, not Sand Point Way. The helistop will move to Building Hope temporarily and later will be located on the roof of the Forest B Building. The Hartman Building will become an outpatient diabetic care facility with construction starting in early 2018 and completion in 2020-21. 
LCC subcommittee members had many questions and concerns to be addressed. SCH representatives will present their plans at a public LCC trustee meeting early in 2017. The date will be announced.
