Commuters and travelers alike travelling down I-90 in between the Sullivan Rd and Barker Rd. exit have probably noticed some site work that is now underway as well as a large sign marking the site that will one day be Providence Health System's new expansion into Spokane Valley.
Providence plans to use this site for a new medical office park,The project sit is actually off of a short street called DeSmet Ct. that connects in with the newly built Indiana Pkwy. . The new center is not a hospital but will be a huge addition to the medical needs of Spokane Valley and the nearby Liberty Lake. The project which is expected to cost upwards of 45 million dollars and employ hundreds. Providence Health expects to open the new medical center sometime in early 2014.
The new Providence Medical Park is being described by Providence as a hybrid facility complete with a large outpatient surgery center as well as numerous family practice, specialty and cancer doctors offices all at one site. Also in the park's plans will be a new urgent care facility. The new medical park will actually be made up of 2 buildings,both 2 stories each directly next to each other and a large parking area all on the 11 acre site.
