OBCC EXPANSION - Continuing the Tradition

Opening in South Seattle in 2021

Seattle Children's Odessa Brown Children's Clinic - A Central District Tradition


For almost 50 years, the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic (OBCC) has provided quality care with dignity, serving families in Seattle's Central District. OBCC promotes whole child wellness by covering primary medical, dental, nutritional, mental health and basic needs - regardless of a family's ability to pay. 

OBCC South Seattle - Expanding to Provide a New Model of Care

Seattle Children's is building a second OBCC location – a bigger, new clinic near the Othello Link light rail station in southeast Seattle’s Rainier Valley. The clinic will be approximately 35,000 square feet to meet the wellness needs of the growing pediatric population in south Seattle and south King County.

Services at the Othello location will include pediatric medical care, mental health, dental services, nutrition, sports medicine, physical therapy and occupational therapy. The clinic will also be part of a unique urban community concept called Othello Square, a 3.2-acre site that will provide families with convenient access to services, such as a charter high school, an economic opportunity center, a computer lab, an early learning center, affordable retail and commercial spaces for rent, community meeting spaces, and mixed-income housing for rent and ownership.

Furthermore, the original OBCC will be renovated to upgrade its clinical facilities and maintain its cultural heritage in the community. The clinic will continue to serve families in the Central District and adjacent neighborhoods, as well as communities to the north and west.
