PeaceHealth, a four-hospital system, plans to relocate its headquarters to Vancouver, Wash., from Bellevue, Wash., pending its merger with Southwest Washington Health System.
PeaceHealth plans to relocate headquarters
Between 75 and 80 PeaceHealth employees are expected to relocate by May 2014, when the lease on the Bellevue office expires. System officials estimate that about 500 people will be on-site at a service center in Vancouver by 2014, with about 60% of those positions coming from various PeaceHealth locations, according to a news release. The move is also contingent on finding suitable office space, a spokesman said.
The affiliation with Southwest Washington Health System is expected to be finalized by year-end, pending routine regulatory approvals and a vote by both systems' boards.
PeaceHealth is a faith-based system that operates hospitals in Alaska, Oregon and Washington state. Southwest Washington Health System is located in Vancouver, Wash.
