Palouse Medical was created from the combined vision and goals of four separate and locally owned medical practices. These practices felt passionately that by collaborating together and merging their Internal Medicine and Family Medicine clinics, they would be able to offer a comprehensive health care package and increase patient access to health care services along the full spectrum of patient care. Palouse Medical is located on the Pullman Regional Hospital complex and has three Family Medicine physicians, three Internal Medicine physicians and two nurse practitioners. Palouse Ready Care serves the urgent care needs of the practice and community and is staffed with a Family Medicine Physician and physician assistant. Palouse Medical also hosts UWSOM students for six weeks of Spokane/Pullman Medicine Clerkship. http://www.palousemedical.com/
