Introduction

Valley Women's Clinic was established in 1976 by Drs. Glen Patchen, Melvin Lake and Wellington Manullang. Since that time, our providers have changed but our compassion and goal of quality medical care for the women of South King County has not.

Our main clinic, located in Renton, Washington, is conveniently located across the street from Valley Medical Center. We also have a full time satellite office in Covington, one of King County's fastest growing suburbs.

Our hospital of choice for surgeries and deliveries is Valley Medical Center. VMC has a brand new LDRP Birth Center, as well as a Level III nursery. In addition, the hospital has 24 hour in-house neonatology and anesthesia coverage, as well as full time perinatology, reproductive endocrinology and gynecologic oncology specialists.

Currently, call is shared equally amongst three physicians. Weekend call is rotated with local Multicare Physicians OBGYN group.
