The seven-story, 115,929-square-foot Rainier Pavilion is part of a $192 million project to expand services for women, newborns and children at Tacoma General Hospital and Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital in Tacoma, Wash.
Since the founding of Tacoma’s first hospital in 1882, MultiCare’s history has been defined by the ability to respond to the health care needs of our community. The early hospital’s growth was attributed to many of the same issues that drive today’s decisions: higher standards for safety, better technology for patients, and increased comfort and privacy for families.
