Work under way on new MultiCare/Franciscan psychiatric hospital

Jul 20, 2017 - 06:06 PM

Demolition is under way at MultiCare Allenmore Hospital’s Building A to make way for the new behavioral health hospital partnership between Tacoma’s two leading health systems.

MultiCare and CHI Franciscan are collaborating to construct and operate the $45 million facility, which is slated to treat some 5,000 patients annually.

MultiCare’s blog offered an update on the project, which is scheduled to be complete next year.

The new Allenmore campus facility, once finished, will help improve access to mental health services in the area — a need for Washington and Pierce County, specifically. Pierce is worst among urban counties in the state in inpatient psychiatric capacity.
