EvergreenHealth is welcoming four new providers to its primary care team.

The specialists join the Kirkland-based health system with experience in internal medicine and a focus on providing comprehensive primary care for patients of all ages.

The new providers include: Jordan Collier at EvergreenHealth Primary Care in Redmond, Christopher Marshall at EvergreenHealth Primary Care in Kenmore, Helan Lee-Garrard at EvergreenHealth Primary Care in Sultan and Xiaobing Wang at EvergreenHealth Internal Medicine and Primary Care in Kirkland.

“We are pleased to welcome these four talented primary care physicians to the EvergreenHealth system,” EvergreenHealth CEO Bob Malte said in a press release. “Their shared passion for serving the diverse health needs of our community perfectly aligns with our mission to advance the health of patients across the Eastside by creating an inclusive community health system.”

Collier, an internal medicine specialist with experience in dermatology, sports medicine, osteopathic manipulation, palliative care and preventative medicine, pursued his interest in medicine from an early age, according to the release. He chose to practice in family and internal medicine because it allows him to cultivate relationships with the families in the community he serves.

Marshall comes to EvergreenHealth with a wide range of hospital-based experience caring for patients in intensive care, post-surgical care and childbirth and delivery, the release states. His hands-on experience during his residency at Utah Valley Hospital gave him the opportunity to treat patients of all ages and at every level of care and he enjoyed being able to continue fostering those patient relationships when he worked in primary care at a nearby clinic after completing residency.

Lee-Garrard is seasoned in both medical and osteopathic care and has a background in the health care industry, according to the release. For 13 years prior to receiving her DO, she gained experience working in health care quality improvement, which reinforced her passion for helping patients on the front lines and led her to specialize in primary care.

Before moving to Seattle, Wang spent 10 years practicing internal medicine and gaining extensive clinical medicine and research experience in New York, the release states. She is an active volunteer for local nonprofit health organizations and has volunteered with initiatives such as the American Heart Association’s Wall Street Run & Heart Walk and Go Red for Women campaign.
