Vashon resident Dr. James Buttitta has joined Vashon Community Care as our new in-house Medical Director and Physician, and will be establishing an on-site clinic at VCC. Dr. Buttitta has been in practice for over 20 years, and specializes in Internal Medicine. Dr. Buttitta has a private practice in Burien, and is affiliated with Highline Hospital. He devotes a significant amount of time to geriatric care.
Dr. Buttitta will be making weekly calls to our Skilled Nursing residents, bringing a new level of medical care to VCC. And our Assisted Living residents will have the option to see Dr. Buttitta at the new clinic we will be creating right in our facility. This is a tremendous event that will significantly raise the level of medical care for our residents. As the Island is responding to the gap left by the Franciscan Clinic closure, VCC is leading with a new strong health care program. This is a decisive step to creating a better VCC to serve Vashon. Please join us in welcoming Dr. Buttitta to our VCC family!
