The Snoqualmie Tribe is turning the former Nelems Memorial Hospital into housing for elders. The 12,000-square-foot building, which dates from 1948 and was a precursor to the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital, will open next year as a four-unit apartment building with preference given to tribal elders. The extensive remodel will add a second story. The project has yet to get an official name. Recent activity included removal of hazardous materials from the site.
