"The people of Tacoma had their backs, though, and it didn’t take long for the message to become clear. 'For years now, MultiCare Pulse Heart Institute has been caring for Tacoma. Tacoma decided it was time to take care of Pulse,' said Sarah Botts."
"We vote for Dr. Leon! Enrique Leon is one of our TFM attending physicians who is setting an example of stepping out of the hospital and into the community in order to advocate for our youth."
"A new MultiCare Health Clinic at Oakland High School, the first of its kind in Tacoma, is helping students succeed in school by allowing them to focus on graduation without having to leave campus for health care."
