For the Reporter

MultiCare Health System has announced an executive director and volunteer board members for the newly formed South King Health Foundation.

The foundation will support MultiCare's mission of providing high quality health care and improved community health in South King County.

MultiCare has a long-standing commitment to the region; the multi-specialty Covington clinic opened more than 20 years ago.

Additional MultiCare clinics are located in Auburn, Kent, Federal Way and Maple Valley. In April 2012, MultiCare opened a freestanding emergency room in Covington and, in October 2012, purchased the 195-bed Auburn Medical Center.

"As a not-for-profit organization, MultiCare counts on the generous support of people who want to make a difference in our community," said Sara Long, vice president of the Foundations of MultiCare. "Our volunteer board members work tirelessly to fulfill our mission of making sure our neighbors receive the health care they deserve."

Alicia Chapman has been named executive director, South King Health Foundation.

New members of the board of directors are Stephen Anderson, MD, co-chair; Terry Davis, co-chair; Sue Singer and Steffanie Fain.
