of the Site and Facility Master Plan


January 12, 2009

Ketchikan, Alaska - Ketchikan General Hospital is inviting the public to attend a presentation of the final draft of the site and facility master plan. The presentation will be in the Four Seasons Café on the ground floor of the hospital from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and again from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, January 13, 2009. The presentation will include 3-D visual representations, the phased construction plan, and the cost estimate.

Starting in May 2008, hundreds of participants have attended more than 50 meetings to help plan for future changes in the hospital, ancillary, support services, and clinics.

Ketchikan General Hospital CEO, Patrick Branco, said "The diversity of participants, including physicians, other health care providers, employees, community representatives, patients and family members, have contributed to the outcome. We feel the plan is truly the best alternative to meet projected demand, accommodate changes in service, and enable evolution to allow KGH to deliver exceptional medicine and compassionate care well into the future."

Ketchikan General Hospital is part of PeaceHealth, a Bellevue, WA-based not-for-profit health care system with medical centers and clinics in Alaska, Washington and Oregon that serves more than 57,000 patients annually. Sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace, Ketchikan General Hospital has provided exceptional medicine and compassionate care to residents of Southeast Alaska since 1923.
