Benefit to the Community
In addition to bringing comprehensive care, the latest treatment technologies and the extensive resources of MultiCare Health System closer to home, MultiCare Covington Medical Center will provide a number of economic benefits to the area.
More JobsThe medical center’s building phase alone will engender 550 new construction jobs. As the new medical center is staffed, the impact will continue to grow. Approximately 550 jobs will be created, ranging from entry-level service jobs to highly skilled surgical positions.
Employment directly related to building and staffing the medical center is just the beginning. Local businesses, especially retail and service-oriented businesses will also see increases in sales and profits as medical center employees and visitors go out for lunch, do their banking, drop off their dry-cleaning, buy groceries and more.
