Lacey location will be closest emergency facility to Yelm
From South Sound Business:
MultiCare Health System broke ground Wednesday on a new 10,000-square-foot neighborhood emergency department in Lacey.
When it opens next summer, the new facility, at 1055 Golf Club Road SE, will feature 10 exam rooms, on-site radiology services including X-ray, ultrasound, and CT scans; an in-house laboratory; and a pediatric provider available daily. Board-certified emergency physicians will staff the new department.
“We know that residents in Thurston County need access to more emergency care,” Will Callicoat, president of MultiCare Capital Medical Center in Olympia, said in a news release. “Emergency departments across the Puget Sound are often at or near capacity. This new facility will give our communities another option when seeking emergency services, often giving patients access to a doctor within 15 minutes.”
