The new facility is a joint venture between Kindred LifePoint Healthcare, Inc. and CHI Franciscan Health. The new $31 million hospital is designed by Earl Swensson Associates, Inc, based in Nashville, Tennessee, which is consistently recognized as one of the top healthcare design firms by Modern Healthcare. The general contractor of the project is Aldrich + Associates, based in the Bothell, Washington, which provides construction services throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Capital Growth Medvest recently completed a new hospital in Great Falls, Montana, before continuing its goal of improving access to healthcare along the West Coast. “Care for patients needing long-term rehabilitation care has hit a tipping point in Pierce County,” said Ketul Patel, CHI Franciscan’s Chief Executive Officer. “[This] is a giant step toward meeting that critical need.” Kindred LifePoint’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Benjamin A. Breier, added “Kindred is proud of partnerships, such as this, with some of the nation’s leading health systems because they recognize how our post-acute expertise and patient-centered care model help drive efficiencies and clinical integration. These collaborative efforts deliver the best in patient care…”
