Franciscan Announces Expansion of St. Joseph Campus


Tacoma, WA

St. Joseph Medical Center, part of Franciscan Health System, will expand its campus with a new five-story medical office building, a 770-stall parking garage and a sky bridge connecting the hospital and new building. Construction on the Franciscan Medical Building at St. Joseph is scheduled to begin Sept. 7, with completion projected for fall 2012. The 120,000-square-foot medical building’s design will allow caregivers from different medical specialties to come together in one location. A distinguishing feature of the building will be four full-service “destination care centers”  offering primary care medicine, orthopedic services, neuroscience specialists (neurologists, neurosurgeons and physiatrists) and women’s care.
