NWMS Achieves 5th Highest Corporate Fundraiser Award For ACS Relay For Life

 

Thanks to all of your generosity we were able to exceed our goal for the American Cancer Society through Relay for Life, making us the 5th highest corporate fundraiser this year. This contribution will help so many people. It could provide 630 free rides to appointments or 315 free nights of lodging for cancer patients who need to travel for treatments. It could also help to fund a research grant to help find a new cancer treatment. Every dollar counts and really does make a difference. Thank you to those who were able to come out and show your support and for all the donations made to the raffle baskets, jean days, luncheons, bake sales, coffee carts and so much more. 
 
Relay for Life started right here in Tacoma with one man, Dr. Gordy Klatt, doing what he could to help in the fight against cancer. 2019 marked the 35th anniversary of his first walk and the event is now being held in more than 30 countries. The Tacoma event alone raised a total of $457,416 in 2019. There is power in community and this shows what we can accomplish when we all work together toward a common goal.  
 
We are so grateful to be part of a company of individuals that really care about our patients and our community. Way to go NWMS!

COVID-19 NOTICE

November 16, 2020 Update

IMPORTANT: NO VISITORS
During these difficult times we are making every effort to keep our patients and staff safe from COVID 19, we appreciate your patience and understanding with the changes you may have seen within our practice.

We strive to protect our patients and staff as much as we possibly can from any exposure on our premises.  NWMS has implemented a system wide policy that does not allow anyone in the building that is not a patient and everyone must wear an NWMS provided mask over their mouth and nose during their time on our premises.  This is to protect our vulnerable patients from the unforeseen possibility of exposure to COVID 19 which can be transmitted through aerosol droplets.  Sadly, we have had patients that have died from the complications of COVID 19, which is both devastating and preventable.

We offer a virtual visit option for family, friends, and companions to participate in the care of our patients through Zoom.  Our staff will assist you with every step of the login process and invite you to participate in real time from your vehicle or designated safe space in our building. Please contact us at 253-428-8700 to set this up.

The following offices are temporarily closed:

  • Bonney Lake
  • Federal Way

If you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms, please make sure to contact us via phone prior to your appointment. You may also contact us for any additional questions by calling our office at (253) 428-8700.
