New Kadlec 60,000 Sq.Ft. Medical Building Opens in Richland

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.-  Kadlec Regional Medical Health Center expands its services into a new three-story building in Richland to streamline patient care.

The Kadlec Health staff and the City of Richland celebrated the opening of the 60,000 sq. ft. building Wednesday.

The new medical office will be home to more than 45 kadlec physicians in 15 specialties.
     
It was designed to bring many of Kadlec's specialty services into one location.

Dr. Tim Baldwin, an Anesthesiologist, Interventional Pain Specialist says it's really exciting. "We can provide this kind of care right in the Tri-Cities, as well as to the people of South Eastern Washington and North Eastern Oregon area, so they don't have to travel to some place like Seattle or Portland to get this kind of care," said Baldwin.

The transition also brings with it three new specialties; Foot and Ankle care, Pulmonology and Cardiology.
     
Each clinic will be moving into the new building over the coming weeks.
