Island Hospital in Anacortes, Washington is celebrating its new Medical Arts Pavilion with an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony that is open to the public. The event starts with a ribbon-cutting at 5:15 p.m. with doors opening 5:30 p.m.
The new 2-story, 26,000 square foot Medical Arts Pavilion, designed by Architects Taylor Gregory Broadway and built by Lydig Construction, will house hospital services on the east campus close to the Emergency Room with enclosed access to the hospital. The Medical Arts Pavilion facility will relocate a number of existing services and will also provide new services not currently available anywhere else in the region. Specific services that will be housed in the new pavilion cover Cancer Care, Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation, Pain Management, and Hyperbaric Wound Care.
The $12.1 million project was financed through New Markets Tax Credit allocations provided by the National Development Council and Kitsap County NMTC Facilitators (an affiliate of Kitsap County Consolidated Housing Authority). Washington Federal Bank provided additional debt financing.
