As part of our ongoing focus on improving access to housing in our region, Columbia Pacific is working to convert the Red Lion Hotel in south Seaside (900 S Holladay Drive) into affordable housing for community members and healthcare providers.
By converting an existing building into housing, we will be able to accelerate the construction schedule and complete the project for approximately half the cost of a new building.
We are targeting completion by spring 2024.
"The lack of housing is a huge barrier to getting medical providers to come work in our community. We lose potential staff every week."
− Pam Cooper, Director of Finance for Providence Seaside Hospital
Columbia Pacific’s investment in housing is in response to community feedback. Access to safe, affordable housing is identified in the CCO’s 2019-2024 Regional Health Improvement Plan as a top priority across our region. More than 1,900 community members provided feedback to inform this plan. Read more about our Housing Investments.
