Kadlec Family Medicine Residency (KFMR) is located in Richland, WA. We are operated by Kadlec Regional Medical Center (KRMC), serving patients since 1944, and affiliated with Providence Health and Services since 2014. Providence is the region's largest private employer and medical provider and has brought important support to Kadlec. In July of 2015, we opened the doors to KFMR and welcomed our first residents.

KFMR is affiliated with the WWAMI Family Medicine Network.
