of the Surgical Center for Tri-State Memorial Hospital. Donations can be made by calling 509.758.4902

Between 2019 and 2021, surgical services at Tri-State have increased by 54% and are expected to
continue. Tri-State’s most common surgeries are replacements of the knee, hip, shoulders, followed by
hernias. As surgery needs continue to rise in the Lewis-Clark Valley, Tri-State Memorial Hospital saw the
need to update their surgical center so that patients can stay local for their healthcare. The new
expansion and update will provide patients and families with the optimum care they each deserve.

“Through generous community donations and support, Tri-State Memorial Hospital is able to continue
enhancing the high-quality care they provide for those they serve,” said D’Lynn Ottmar, Chief
Development Officer at Tri-State Hospital Foundation. “Every donation is important, and we are so
grateful to the Lewis-Clark Valley community for helping make this dream a reality.”
The entirety of the surgery expansion project will cost upwards of $4 million. The Tri-State Hospital
Foundation is tasked to raise $1 million dollars, with a goal of reaching $50,000 goal during the
December 14 MediaThon Event
