Tacoma General Hospital

Tacoma GeneralTacoma General Hospital at 315 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. is Tacoma’s largest hospital and part of the Multicare Health Systems. Their website is here http://www.multicare.org/tacomageneral/

Today’s new place is Group Health at 209 Martin Luther King Junior Way. Fast facts on their website state that as of October 2010 Group Health in general has over 650,000 members and a staff of 9,365, of which 985 are physicians.

While we were up on the 4th Floor for an allergy appointment, we enjoyed the lovely view!  For the record, we have always been impressed with the level of care that we have received from Group Health.
