Master Facilities Plan
Upgrading to meet community needs
As EvergreenHealth has grown, we continuously evaluate the changing needs of our patients and community – while also carefully assessing aging infrastructure and facilities that must be upgraded to meet these needs, safely, well into the future.
Now, with increasing preference for our services, a growing community and an aging population who are living longer and needing more care and services, advancing our Master Facilities Plan is more crucial than ever.
Our Master Facilities Plan was developed to ensure that we continue to provide the best possible care in an environment of absolute safety. It was the outcome of 18 months of planning, and was approved by our Board of Commissioners in 2016.
It is designed to help ensure that:
- EvergreenHealth Medical Center is safe should a disaster occur
- Our physical plant and facilities support are well-equipped to provide the safest environment for our patients and staff
- We can accommodate the rapid growth and increasing health care needs of our community
The Master Facility Plan is based on what we know today, and while changing circumstances in the coming years may cause us to adjust the specifics and timing of the plan, this long-term plan is essential to support our vision and preserve our mission.
The 10-year plan charts a course through, and perhaps beyond, 2026.
