Compass Health will be closing the Snohomish County Triage Center (SCTC) at the Bailey Building, 3322 Broadway, in Everett, WA. We anticipate our last day to admit new clients will be no later than Monday, April 24, 2023.
Relaunching in two to three years, our Snohomish County-based crisis stabilization center will return as part of our Broadway Campus Redevelopment’s second phase – a state-of-the-art facility for intensive behavioral health services.
The triage center serves community members experiencing mental health crises – helping to deescalate challenges, connect individuals to sustained care, and ease burdens on local emergency rooms, law enforcement and other first responders. Considering the vital role of this program, the Compass Health team worked diligently to prevent any disruption in service – and specifically aimed to avoid this unfortunate closure.
Because the building that currently houses our triage center will be removed to make way for the Broadway Campus Redevelopment, we planned to temporarily relocate those services to another local facility during construction. A single location within Snohomish County met stringent regulations for crisis-facility licensing, capacity and other requirements, but unfortunately, the landlord did not approve its use. Despite an exhaustive search with external real estate partners, we were not able to identify another appropriate site.
As we prepare for the closure, our team is working closely with staff members to identify other open positions with Compass Health that are a good fit based on their credentials, education and experience.
Planned Reopening in 2025: Broadway Campus Redevelopment
Looking ahead, we are enthusiastic about the opportunity to reopen our crisis stabilization center as part of the Broadway Campus Redevelopment – an environment that is purpose-built to support recovery, serve as a magnet for behavioral health professionals, and demonstrate respect for the clients we serve. As we’ve experienced with our Whatcom County Triage Center, we believe that an upgraded and modern facility – paired with innovations to our crisis stabilization model – will also enable us to increase utilization so that we can serve even more community members.
