Spokane, WA- After a devastating fire destroyed a north Spokane building on July 5, 2013, St. Luke’s remains committed to serving the North Spokane community and have rescheduled patients’ therapy appointments at other St. Luke’s Outpatient locations.
“It’s a challenging situation for our therapy team and patients, but we didn’t skip a beat,” said Nancy Webster, director of rehabilitation services for St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute. “St. Luke’s has a long history serving the North Spokane community and that commitment of providing services to people in those neighborhoods remains.”
Late Friday afternoon on July 5, 2013 a structure fire broke out at St. Luke’s North Outpatient Therapy facility located at 5901 North Mayfair. Because of the holiday weekend, north site patients, employees and building tenants had left before the fire broke out. Unfortunately, the building St. Luke’s leased space in is a total loss and is being demolished.
While St. Luke’s looks for a new, permanent location on the north side, the St. Luke’s team is doing everything they can to ensure a smooth transition under difficult circumstances. The therapy team was relocated to alternative locations on Monday and is caring for patients at St. Luke's six other outpatient locations and other health care organization’s therapy spaces:
| St. Luke's- Main Campus
711 South Cowley St.
| St. Luke's @ OZ- North
