Dear Patients and Colleagues

I am writing at this time to inform that Northwest Center for Integrative Medicine has ceased operations, with our last day of clinical work having been provided on May 29, 2015.   It has been a privilege to serve our patients and the local medical community for the past 21+ years, and we thank you for your support and confidence over the years.

At this point, we have been informing active patients and the medical community of this news via letter and/or direct communication for the past three months.  All active patients have been either formally referred/transferred, or informed of their need to seek new providers, and in either event provided with documentation or prescription refills sufficient to cover them through the transition.

For those seeking medical services, Dr. Cooper will be continuous in the local medical community, and is now working at the Multicare Occupational Medicine Clinic in Fife.

For those seeking psychological services, Dr. Soleck will be continuous in the local community, and is now working at Tacoma Psychology, 253-383-0101.

Our CARF-accredited Interdisciplinary Pain Rehabilitation Program ceased operation on the noted date. At this point, for those patients needing such a program, the alternate local options are the Franciscan program at St. Clare Hospital in Lakewood, or Pacific Rehabilitation in Puyallup.

To request medical records, your point of contact will be our custodian of records, Spectrum Information Services NW, Inc. Their contact information is as follows: 206-686-2821 (phone); 206-686-2840 (fax), and e-mail address, roisupport@sisnwinc.com.

Again, thanks for all your support over the years.
