Kadlec New Multipurpose Facility
Kadlec Regional Medical Center's new multi purpose facility is on its way to becoming a reality.
We had the opportunity to tour the construction site on Lee Blvd. in Richland where the new Kadlec Healthplex is being built.
The center will combine outpatient care and health resources for all ages.
There will be more than 15 services available including everything from cardiac rehabilitation and physical therapy to nutrition counseling services and speech therapy.
Kadlec says the facility is the first of its kind in the Tri-Cities.
"By having this in one location well be able to meet the needs of our community of all ages and having those health care resources, libraries and a retail shop that has some speciality products that are hard to find. We'll be better able to help do some prevention as well," said Angela Mohondro of Kadlec.
Kadlec has been planning the new one stop health facility for more than two years now and it's expected to open May 2014.
