Snoqualmie Valley Hospital breaks ground today for new building

September 25, 2013

By Administrator

A groundbreaking celebration for the new Snoqualmie Valley Hospital begins at 2 p.m. today (Sept. 25) at the new site just west of Snoqualmie Parkway, near I-90 and Highway 18. This event will mark the start of construction for the hospital building.

Gregory Malcolm will emcee the event. Speakers will include Board President, Dick Jones, Snoqualmie Mayor, Matt Larson, Manager of Benaroya Companies, Larry Benaroya, and Former Secretary for the WA State Department of Health, Mary Selecky.  Light refreshments will follow the ceremonial shovel turning.

Scheduled to open to patients in late 2014, the 70,000 square-foot hospital will be nearly three times the size of the current facility. It will feature 25 private, single-occupancy rooms, expanded emergency department, larger rehab and lab departments, expanded imaging and diagnostic services, larger primary and specialty care clinics and an education facility.

The existing hospital will remain open to serve the community during the construction.

    If you have followed this hospital you should well know what a bunch of losers are running and going further backward with each move. I will not support these people and will do my best to use a hospital like Swedish. Snoqualmie Valley Hospital has been a loser from day one. I hope the folks on the ridge do a little homework on these people for those of us in the Valley know the story behind this losing operation.
