New Airway and Esophageal Center Offers Coordinated, Multidisciplinary Team Care That Is Unique in the Northwest

Seattle Children’s is proud to announce the opening of a new Airway and Esophageal Center serving babies, children and teens through age 20. The center provides seamless, multidisciplinary care from a highly experienced team of experts for patients who have complex conditions affecting their airway, breathing and swallowing.

“Due to these patients’ complexity and need for care from many different specialists throughout their childhood, it’s essential they receive well-coordinated care from experts who are working as an integrated team and communicating regularly,” says Dr. Jake Dahl, an otolaryngologist at the center. “We have created the Airway and Esophageal Center expressly for that purpose, with care coordination and wraparound services built in to ensure our patients don’t just survive, they thrive.”

This highest level of continuous, comprehensive specialty care for children with challenging airway and esophageal issues is unique to Seattle Children’s regionally and hard to find even nationally.

Multidisciplinary Care

The Airway and Esophageal Center team includes experts from many Seattle Children’s specialties: otolaryngology, gastroenterology, pulmonology, sleep medicine, maxillofacial surgery, pediatric surgery, anesthesiology, speech and language pathology, nutrition, feeding therapy, social work, nursing, newborn critical care and pediatric intensive care.

Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic Update: On-Site Radiology Now Available, Clinic Is Fully Reopened

Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic (OBCC) Othello is now offering X-ray services. A provider referral is required.

Families can bring their child (age 0 to 18) in for an X-ray any time between the hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, once they have a referral from their child’s provider. Appointments are not required.  To refer your patient, fax the Radiology Exam Request Form to 206-985-3128, send the original form with the patient or use EpicCare Link (the latter eliminates the risk of sending an order to the wrong fax number and avoids delays due to potential network errors).

Repairs are complete at OBCC Othello following water damage from a fire in December in the building where the clinic is located. The clinic is fully reopened. All clinic appointments are being held on-site as usual.
