New emergency rooms keep opening around western Washington. It's part of a trend.
On Thursday (Feb. 17th), Swedish Medical Centers will open a free-standing Emergency Department in Mill Creek, between Seattle and Everett. And, on the same day, MultiCare opens a new medical tower at Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup -- which has the busiest ER in Pierce County.
It turns out, the busiest ER’s in Washington are mostly outside the biggest cities.
