CHI Franciscan Health to spend more than $530M on Harrison Medical Center expansion

Tacoma, Wash.-based CHI Franciscan Health has submitted a letter of intent to the Washington State Department of Health requesting regulatory approval to invest in a new hospital at Harrison Medical Center-Silverdale (Wash.). The LOI is the first step in the certificate of need application.

CHI Franciscan Health, which affiliated with Harrison Medical Center in 2014, plans to invest more than $530 million on the expansion project. The project will be divided into two phases.

Phase one, which will cost $283 million, will involve the transfer of 168 inpatient beds from the Harrison Medical Center-Bremerton (Wash.) license while retaining 85 licensed beds at Bremerton. Harrison Medical Center-Bremerton, which houses 253 beds, will close after the completion of phase one in Silverdale.

The second phase will add the rest of the beds, based on demand, and is expected to cost $201 million.

CHI Franciscan Health plans to submit the full CON application to state regulators later this year.
