Confluence Health Announces Major Expansion in Grant County

Confluence Health Acquires Property to Build Medical Office Building and Announces Plan to Develop Cancer Treatment Center

Expansion plan

MOSES LAKE, WA – Confluence Health has announced plans to expand services in Grant County. The information is announced in a news release issued today.

Confluence Health News Release:

For nearly 40 years, Confluence Health has supported Grant County and its surrounding communities with primary and specialty healthcare. We are proud to strengthen that commitment by announcing plans to build a much-needed radiation treatment facility in Moses Lake, and to acquire property and to construct a new medical office building that will house our specialty services. Together, these initiatives will enable Confluence Health to offer more accessible, enhanced medical care to Grant County and surrounding communities.

Columbia Basin Patients will be Better Served

The specialty services building is projected to be approximately 20,000 to 25,000 square feet and will be constructed on a seven-acre property located at the corner of Yonezawa Boulevard and Road K. NE in Moses Lake. “This development will create a cascading effect, creating more space and time for our providers to see their Columbia Basin patients with as little wait possible,” explains Confluence Health CEO Peter Rutherford, MD. “Additionally, the building will contribute to a strong alliance between our primary care services and our specialists, resulting in more coordinated care.” Conceptual plans for the proposed medical office building are currently being created, with ground breaking expected in late 2019.

New Cancer Treatment Center Planned

In addition, Confluence Health and the Columbia Basin Cancer Foundation will be launching a $3.5 million capital campaign to build a much-needed radiation treatment facility in Moses Lake. The proposed facility will be connected to the Confluence Health Moses Lake Clinic and total project costs are estimated to be $7 million. Once constructed, this new facility will enable patients to receive radiation treatments close to home rather than traveling out of town. In turn, this will help improve the quality of medical care and quality of life for those patients and their caregivers.
