Compass Health Celebrates Topping Out Ceremony for Phase II of Broadway Campus Redevelopment Project

Today, Compass Health marked the topping out of Phase II of its Broadway Campus Redevelopment project. The ceremonial event recognizes a significant milestone: the placement of the final structural beam in the construction of the new state-of-the-art facility dedicated to comprehensive behavioral health services.

Located in Everett’s Broadway corridor, the $71.5M facility will allow Compass Health to once again offer crisis triage services in Snohomish County, along with a full spectrum of services for intensive behavioral health needs. The new 70,000+ square-foot building will include a 16-bed evaluation and treatment (E&T) unit, a 16-bed crisis triage center, intensive outpatient behavioral health services, and offices for crisis prevention, outreach, and community engagement teams.

“Today’s topping out ceremony marks progress towards the return of a crisis triage center to Snohomish County. We are one step closer to a new facility that reflects the sophisticated, world-class care our team delivers on a daily basis, and underscores the dignity and respect every client deserves,” said Tom Sebastian, CEO and president of Compass Health.

By offering integrated care under one roof, we aim to create a seamless support system for individuals and families facing mental health challenges in Snohomish County and beyond.

“The purpose-built design of the new facility will allow Compass Health to step up or step down services as needed, providing a wide range of programs available under one roof. The intentional and approachable design of the building will make it that much easier to deliver comprehensive care, removing potential barriers to care for clients,” said Dr. Katie Gilligan, chief medical officer of Compass Health.

The Broadway Campus Redevelopment project is a three-phase initiative. Phase II is slated for completion in summer of 2025. Phase I, Andy’s Place, opened in May 2021 and provides 82 units of permanent supportive housing for homeless individuals with chronic behavioral health challenges. Eight units are reserved for homeless veterans. Phase III will integrate behavioral health services with a primary healthcare clinic, further enhancing the continuum of care available to the community.

An array of funding sources has coalesced to make this project possible, including It’s Time: The Campaign for Compass Health. To date, the capital campaign has raised $11 million, including $3 million from the Sunderland Foundation, $2 million in federal Human Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) funding secured with the support of U.S. Representative Rick Larsen, $1 million from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust, $1 million from The Norcliffe Foundation, and $700,000 from Premera Blue Cross, along with more than 50 significant private gifts.

Phase II has also been made possible thanks to other noted champions in elected office who have seen the benefit of Compass Health’s vision for regional behavioral health transformation. Importantly, leaders in the Washington State Legislature have made considerable investments, with special thanks to sponsors from the 38th legislative district: Senator June Robinson and Representative Julio Cortes, as well as Representative Mary Fosse. We also appreciate support from legislators from neighboring districts that will also benefit from this regional project, who have been strong advocates for the project within the legislature, including Senator Ron Muzzall, Senator Keith Wagoner, Representative Dave Paul, Representative Carolyn Eslick, Representative Sam Low, Senator John Lovick, Representative Brandy Donaghy, and Representative April Berg. 

Key support was also provided by the Chairs of our State Healthcare Committees, Senator Annette Cleveland and Representative Marcus Riccelli for always validating the importance of our project, and other behavioral health champions in the legislature who are fierce advocates for Compass Health – Representative Lauren Davis, Representative Lisa Callan, Representative Steve Tharinger, Senator Manka Dhingra, Representative Joe Schmick, and Representative Nicole Macri. 

We would also like to thank Mayor Franklin and the Everett City Council for contributing $1M toward the project. Compass Health hopes to partner with Snohomish County on a future investment as well. We appreciate Senator Patty Murray currently leading the charge on an additional investment from Congress as we speak.

The Phase II development team consists of Lotus Development Partners (Development and Construction Manager); BNBuilders (General Contractor); Ankrom Moisan Architects (Project Architect); KPFF (Structural Engineer); Harmsen (Civil Engineer); Bush Roed Hitchings (Surveyor); Sider + Byers (Mechanical and Electrical Engineer); SiteWorkshop (Landscape Design); RDH (Envelope Consultant); and RWDI (LEED Consultant). Since breaking ground, the construction team has removed 3,924 CY of soil, installed 1,452 CY of new concrete, over 65 Tons of new structural steel, and worked over 40,000 field hours injury free!
