King 5 News cites Vera Whole Health as the centerpiece to the City of Kirkland's recent healthcare success.
"In America, there's a lot of waste in our health care system," said Dr. Karl Weyrauch, who leads the facility, "What we have in the rest of American health care is sick care. In Vera, we have a focus on keeping people healthy."
What makes this particular facility different are the people Dr. Weyrauch sees. Almost all of them are employees with the city of Kirkland. This is their clinic.
"They have longer visits than other kinds of clinics," said Dr. Weyrauch, "And they don't have any out-of-pocket expenses."
