Medical school graduates from WSU’s Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine could soon have a new opportunity to pursue a residency program based at Pullman Regional Hospital.

Thanks to a $300,000 grant from the Sunderland Foundation, Pullman Regional Hospital will be remodeling approximately 5,000 square feet of space to accommodate a new Family Medicine Residency Program. Renovations are expected to begin this fall, with the first group of physician residents expected to arrive in June 2022.

“As a first-time recipient of Sunderland Foundation funding, we’re immensely grateful for this new relationship with a highly reputable and prestigious Foundation,” said Scott Adams, CEO of Pullman Regional Hospital. “This affirms our vision to train exceptional physicians here in Pullman.”

The renovated space will include 14 exam rooms, a waiting area, library, study area and faculty offices for the new Family Medicine Residency Program. Residents of the three year program will treat patients under the oversight of Dr. Stephen Hall, developing program director.

The Sutherland Foundation supports nonprofits through investments in the places and spaces where these groups do their work, having done so since 1945. In 2019, $41 million was awarded to hospitals and health-care groups to build and improve their facilities.
