St. Michael Medical Center has been undergoing a years-long process to expand access to care on the Kitsap Peninsula. In 2020, the hospital expansion opened in Silverdale, including a Level III Trauma Center hospital, Cancer Center and Medical Pavilion in one central campus. Building on our $540 million investment, the next phase of development will meet the growing needs of our Kitsap community and provide a range of facilities to ensure the appropriate level of care to all, including:
New Patient Tower in Silverdale – Construction on the patient tower at the Silverdale campus is confirmed to proceed. Once complete in 2025, the patient tower will house the additional 74 beds currently from the original Bremerton campus to increase hospital capacity. The tower has been part of the St. Michael Medical Center expansion plans since the state approved the Certificate of Need for the project in 2017.
Razing Bremerton Campus – In alignment with long-term plans, the Bremerton campus demolition will begin in fall 2023. It will take about one year and is expected to be completed in summer 2024.
Hybrid ER/Urgent Care Facility – This facility will maintain urgent care services locally in Bremerton. It ensures patients receive the appropriate level of care, while increasing acute care capacity at the hospital. The facility will be complemented by the VMFH Family Medicine Clinic next door, which offers comprehensive preventative medical care services. It is on track to open in mid-2024.
While these facilities are underway, we are also continuing to invest in the health of our Bremerton community, including:
Marvin Williams Recreation Center: $100k donation as part of a 10-year partnership, to support culturally responsive education programs that address hypertension, diabetes education and chronic disease management.
