Mason General will consolidate the clinical offices and patient services presently located in multiple buildings east of the hospital. The new medical office building will also allow the system to offer new health care services and to recruit and retain more physicians to its family of clinics.
MGH&FC is based in Shelton, in Mason County on the peninsula Northwest of Olympia. Since 2000, Mason County’s population has been rapidly growing, creating increased demand for a variety of medical services. MGH&FC is carefully designing the new medical office building to meet its community’s needs and provide patients with the highest level of care.
The new building will also provide space for MGH&FC to continue in its mission of working toward providing integrated team-based care within the District. MGH&FC’s number of patient exam rooms will be increased from 71 to 104, and additional on-campus space will be available for outpatient and off-campus medical services.
“Medical services have changed dramatically in the past few years, and innovative processes are making patient care better every day,” said MGH&FC CEO Eric Moll. “It is our dream that this new building will inspire and empower the members of our community to achieve their best health.”
Construction has begun, and the new medical building is expected to be complete and ready-for-use by late 2019, one year after the hospital’s 50th anniversary. Read more from Thurston Talk.
