After five years and countless hours of effort, Kennewick General Hospital has signed off on plans to build a brand new hospital in the Southridge area.

C.D. Smith Construction of Wisconsin will do the work on the 74 bed facility, which will also feature expanded emergency and intensive car units–larger than those found in the Auburn street facility. KGH will keep 27 beds downtown in the existing building for pediatric and obstectric care,  and will install an urgent care center downtown.

  The construction is expected to employ about 250 workers, most from the Tri-Cities, and will bring in an estimated 5 million dollars in tax revenue to the City Of Kennewick.  Construction is expected to start as early as Monday April 23rd, and it will take about two years to complete.
