A: Enumclaw Regional Hospital became St. Elizabeth Hospital on February 2, 2011. St. Elizabeth Hospital is part of the CHI Franciscan Health. The space of the new St. Elizabeth Hospital provides for quality medical services and patient care, but office space to accommodate the needs of RFWF was not available.
