PeaceHealth United General Medical Center celebrates five years of operation this month, and the list of health care services available to the community keeps growing.
On April 1, 2014, PeaceHealth officially affiliated with the United General Hospital District 304, continuing the legacy initiated by the district of providing quality health care services to the residents of the district, and beyond.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the support we’ve received from the community since we opened in 2014,” said Chris Johnston, PeaceHealth United General’s chief administrative officer. “We’ve strengthened local services and added new services in the medical center, including orthopedic surgery, women’s services, more sophisticated imaging and cancer treatment modalities, to name a few,” continued Johnston.
Johnston also noted the opening of the PeaceHealth Sedro-Woolley Clinic in August 2018 that houses both primary and specialty care services, plus a walk-in clinic for same day care.
“PeaceHealth has spent nearly $20 million in capital improvements, equipment and technology in the last five years to care for our community and build a local, lasting presence,” said Johnston.
Johnston also recognized the role and support PeaceHealth has received from United General District, the volunteer PeaceHealth United General Medical Center Community Health Board, and the Concerned Citizens Group, a group of local citizens who pushed for a full-service hospital years ago and stood by PeaceHealth throughout the affiliation process and beyond.
“Without these dedicated group of community members, and the efforts of our incredible caregivers, we would not be thriving as we are today,” said Johnston.
