A new home for Mary Bridge Children’s


Ushering in a new era of pediatric care for the Pacific Northwest

After more than 30 years of sharing space with MultiCare Tacoma General Hospital, Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital is getting a new home.

Mary Bridge Children’s is the only Level II Pediatric Trauma hospital in Western Washington. Maintaining this designation and opening a new state-of-the-art facility is an incredible development in pediatric medicine for our region and is a critical step forward as we continue to provide the best health care to children in our communities.

The new hospital building will be located on the corner of Division Avenue and Martin Luther King Junior Way, across the street from its current location. Design and architectural elements of the new hospital building will reflect Mary Bridge Children’s roots in Tacoma and the Pacific Northwest.

Preliminary work on the multi-year project is underway and construction of the new hospital building is scheduled to begin in early 2022. 

Building a new hospital from the ground up is a large undertaking and is a once in a generation opportunity to create one of the best and safest children’s hospitals in the nation.
