To date, the trend of free standing full ER's has yet to hit Spokane. Until now...
Some work has started, and a ground breaking / official announcement is likely coming next week. But, we have learned that Rockwood Health System, operating in this case under the Deaconess Hospital name is planning a clinic with and ER department on a long time vacant lot in North Spokane.
The new Deaconess Hospital clinic / ER will be built at 8202 N. Division immediately north of Discount Tire and a short distance south of The Y . Below, is a photo of the exterior of the new building-
The building will be roughly 12,700 square feet sitting on 5 acres of land. The new North Spokane Deaconess will have 15 private emergency care rooms in addition to an on site Laboratory department and diagnostic imaging department. Some office space will also be included as will parking and room for future expansion.
Construction will likely start soon as a building permit for the new facility is currently under plan review. On those permits, M J Harris Construction Services, LLC of Birmingham,AL is listed as the contractor for the project.
Keep watching for more as we expect to hear an opening date and how many this new center will employ sometime very soon. Until then, for more information on Rockwood Health System visit their web site at-
