More Than A Medical School


One of Greater Spokane Incorporated's priority projects for the community is the continued support and build out of medical education in the Spokane region. GSI supports both Washington State University and University of Washington as they move forward in their developments of medical education in our region.

Medical education is an important development - both from an economic development perspective in achieving a 20-year annual economic impact of $1.6 billion and over 9,000 jobs and developments in biomedical research, but it is also necessary to address the state's growing physician shortage and the need for improved healthcare access in Eastern Washington, particularly primary care physicians in rural and underserved areas.

The Academic Health Science Center at Spokane's Riverpoint Campus is more than a medical school. It's about transforming the future of health care with a new kind of teaching and research center that will be an economic game changer for the region.
