A new medical residency program developed in partnership with Pullman Regional Hospital and the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine continues to gain support in the form of a second major grant.

The M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust has awarded a $450,000 grant to Pullman Regional Hospital to renovate approximately 5,000 square feet of space. That space, which will include 14 exam rooms as well as a study area, library and faculty offices, will be used for the 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. Residents of the three year program will treat patients under the oversight of Dr. Stephen Hall, developing program director.

“We’re so grateful for our longstanding relationship with M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust,” said Scott Adams, CEO of Pullman Regional Hospital. “This affirms a shared vision to recruit, train and retain new physicians, in eastern Washington.”

The M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust has provided more than $1 billion in grants and support to more than 3,000 non-profits in the Pacific Northwest since its founding in 1975.

In March, Pullman Regional Hospital received a $300,000 grant from the Sutherland Foundation in support of the renovation to accommodate the new medical residency program. That renovation is estimated to cost $1.55 million and is being funded through philanthropy.
