Excellent care. State of the art services. Short waiting time. No parking fees. If you take the bus, they have a bus stop right on campus, no walking blocks to get inside the building. Provides a wide variety of services from Joint replacement surgery, to a beautiful birthing center. I use to go downtown Seattle to get my care, but I have found a little gem in Highline and find I get quicker service. It's really not much further out distance wise as you would think.... they are 10-12 minutes from Downtown Seattle! Great doctors, beautiful campus, family friendly. I won't go downtown for my care anymore. I can get the same quality care quicker and faster without paying for parking and waiting forever to see a doctor.

Highline Medical Center allowed my girlfriend Louise Lawrence) to die unattended in January of 2001. She was being treated by interns who apparently had little experience and could not even tell when she was having bed sores.

She should have been in intensive care as admitted by the hospital after she died.
