MultiCare has a deep bond with the communities we serve. Our South Sound roots extend to the founding of Tacoma’s first hospital, the Fannie C. Paddock Memorial Hospital, in 1882. Today, our health care mission has evolved into a fully integrated health system composed of five hospitals and a network of clinics serving the health care needs of the entire South Puget Sound region. Though our medical technologies have changed greatly over the years, our devotion to the health, comfort and well-being of our patients remains as strong as when Bishop Paddock began his healing ministry in this community 132 years ago.
As the premier health system in our region, we care deeply about improving the health of the people we serve and are passionate about finding new and better ways to help individuals on their path to better health and wellness.
In 2013 alone MultiCare provided free and subsidized health care services valued at $152 million at our care sites throughout the region, Of course, the true human value of this investment is immeasurable. As our communities grow and their needs evolve, our dedication to the people we serve remains as strong as ever.
