The Washington Health Care Facilities Authority
The Washington Health Care Facilities Authority was created by the state Legislature in 1974 to provide a new source of capital funding for modern, well equipped, and reasonably priced health care facilities. The Authority helps minimize the costs of construction and acquisition of health care facilities, thereby reducing the costs to care for the patients who use such facilities, by offering tax-exempt financing to nonprofit health care organizations. In the capital intensive industry of health care, the opportunity for nonprofit health care organizations to borrow on a tax-exempt basis through the Authority results in significant savings. Since its founding, the Authority has helped finance over $15 billion in nonprofit health care facilities in every corner of Washington, including facilities for hospitals, cancer centers, community clinics, farm worker clinics, mental health and behavioral health centers, and blood centers, among others.
Since 1928, Uwajimaya has evolved beyond providing basic grocery staples and become known as a tourist and destination store. Now with more than 400 employees in locations including Seattle, Bellevue, Renton and Beaverton, OR, Uwajimaya is one of the largest Asian grocery retailers in the Pacific Northwest. The company’s reputation is built on being known as the information specialist on all things Asian and part of its mission is to educate the customer on all aspects of Asian culture.
The company also feels a responsibility to help build and strengthen the communities it serves. Uwajimaya supports several local organizations that primarily focus on promoting community development, education, senior and elderly assistance and multi-cultural issues. One organization in particular that Uwajimaya supports is Keiro Northwest, an organization focused on providing health and wellness services for Asian seniors that Uwajimaya helped found 40 years ago. Uwajimaya has provided resources – its people, products, sponsorships to improve the health, wellness and quality of life for seniors who participate in the many programs associated with Keiro Northwest. Uwajimaya’s partnership with Keiro Northwest includes sponsoring Asian cooking classes via the continuing education program – Nikkei Horizons, providing delicious bento lunches for the Annual Founders’ Golf Tournament Fundraiser and recruiting employees to volunteer at events for Keiro Northwest’s Ayame Kai Guild’s Steak Dinner Fundraiser. http://www.keironorthwest.org
