Greater Seattle Area



Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute (KPWHRI) is located in downtown Seattle, Wash. You'll find a wide range of lifestyles in this area, from the sophisticated urban environment of downtown Seattle to the charming, small town life offered by many of King County's rural and suburban areas. With the Cascades and Lake Washington to the east and Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains to the west, outdoor enthusiasts may believe they've found nirvana.

The Greater Seattle area is also famous for its diverse and avant-garde cultural scene. Opportunities abound for art, music, film, and theater aficionados. With all these wonderful diversions, it's hard to believe that Western Washingtonians have time for work. However, this area is a major center for research and is home to nationally and internationally recognized research organizations such as KPWHRI, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and the University of Washington. It's no wonder this area has been recognized many times as one of the best places in the USA to live and work.
