New Cancer Center In Puyallup, WA-COMING SOON

Great news! Our new cancer center in Puyallup, WA is well underway and will be finished by the end of the year! 

In 2012 NWMS opened the current Puyallup building with a vision to treat patients right in their own community for years to come. As NWMS has grown and developed new programs over the years, the need for additional space became a reality.

The new cancer center is roughly 24,000 square feet and will house our current Puyallup staff in addition to cancer rehabilitation, radiation oncology, a patient resource room and more!

We are pleased to share some progress photos with you and we look forward to continuing to bring the highest quality and most innovative care to the patients in our community.
