Trios Health is firmly rooted in Tri-Cities history, first welcoming through its hospital doors in 1952 the community that conceived of and built it through years of hard work, ingenuity, and dedication. We were built by the community, for the community, and we will never forget it.

A variety of essays have been written about the genesis of what has now—several decades later—evolved into a full-service healthcare system with one of the largest multi-specialty medical groups in the region and an enduring reputation for caring. We encourage you to read the two essays below for a special glimpse into why we remain proud and committed, after all of these years, to giving you our best.
