Kadlec Gifts $18 Million to WSU Tri-Cities

It’s what WSU Tri-Cities officials are calling a “Game Changer”.

Kadlec Regional Medical Center and WSU Tri-Cities celebrated a new partnership today, with Kadlec gifting 18 million dollars to support the WSU Tri-Cities Nursing Program. The money will create five new endowed faculty positions to the WSU TC Campus. Their hope is to recruit highly qualified individuals to the school, to help meet the region’s need for Doctor of Nursing Professionals.

This is the largest single gift ever given to WSU Tri-Cities.

After the public ceremony this morning, the public and prospective students were given a tour of the WSU Tri Cities nursing facility.
