Snoqualmie Tribe seeks to buy hospital site
The Snoqualmie Tribe of Washington is negotiating the purchase of the 48-acre Snoqualmie Valley Hospital.

The tribe would buy the site for $30 million and convert the facility into a major Indian health center. "You have to dream big," tribal administrator Matt Mattson told The Seattle Times. "This is a big idea, and we're really excited about taking it on."

The chief financial officer for the hospital said a deal is "very close." A public hearing on the sale will be held January 17.

The Snoqualmie Tribe was recognized through the Bureau of Indian Affairs process in 1999.
