On Wednesday, the Pullman Regional Hospital Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a proposal to put a 25 year, $29 million bond on the ballot in April 2019 for public vote. The bond would help fund the Next Era of Excellence initiative, which includes building a 45,000 square foot health pavilion next to the hospital that would house a Center for Women’s & Children’s Health, physician offices, space for a rural residency program, clinical simulation training labs and other outpatient services. The total cost of the project is projected to be $40 million and includes the development and implementation of a community wide electronic medical record, remodeling of some of the existing hospital and upgrades to technology and medical equipment.
Those living within the hospital boundaries or Pullman city limits are eligible to vote in this special election.
