About MultiCare Health System
MultiCare is a not-for-profit health care organization with more than 18,000 team members, including employees, providers and volunteers.
We’ve been caring for our community for well over a century, since the founding of Tacoma’s first hospital. And today, we are the largest community-based, locally governed health system in the state of Washington.
Our comprehensive system of health includes numerous primary care, urgent care and specialty services — including Immediate Clinic, MultiCare Indigo Urgent Care, Pulse Heart Institute and MultiCare Rockwood Clinic, the largest multispecialty clinic in the Inland Northwest region.
Our network of care includes eight hospitals:
MultiCare Allenmore Hospital, Tacoma
MultiCare Auburn Medical Center, Auburn
MultiCare Covington Medical Center, Covington
MultiCare Deaconess Hospital, Spokane
MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital, Puyallup
Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital, Tacoma — the region’s only children’s hospital and state-designated Level II Pediatric Trauma Center for Western Washington
MultiCare Tacoma General Hospital, Tacoma, which is home to the Puget Sound Region’s only Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
MultiCare Va...lley Hospital, Spokane Valley
MultiCare Medical Associates, affiliated physicians and a wide range of community outreach programs across the state complete our organization.
Health care has changed a lot since the Fanny C. Paddock Memorial Hospital — now Tacoma General — opened its doors in 1882. Today the pace of change has never been faster, and the changes themselves have never been more fundamental.
But even as we grow beyond Tacoma and the Puget Sound region — transforming ourselves from a local health care provider to a state-wide health care system — our purpose remains the same: to care for our patients and our communities and to partner for healing and a healthy future.
