BREMERTON – Virginia Mason Franciscan Health has announced plans to open a hybrid emergency room and urgent care center on Kitsap Way in Bremerton. The health care group said the location would be the first in a group of similar sites it plans to open around Puget Sound over the next four years.

The new Bremerton facility, which will open adjacent to VMFH’s Kitsap Way Family Medicine Clinic, will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and have onsite lab equipment and a radiology suite with X-ray and CT scanners, the health system said in an announcement. The total number of emergency room bays at the facility is still being evaluated, St. Michael Medical Center president Chad Melton said in an interview with the Kitsap Sun.
