Providence Everett has over 3,000 employees and approximately 1,000 physicians on staff. It is currently licensed for 468 beds[1] following the completion of the $500 million, 12-story, 680,000 square foot Marshall and Katherine Cymbaluk Medical Tower in June 2011.

History[edit]

Providence Regional Medical Center Everett was created from a merger between Providence Hospital and General Hospital Medical Center.

Providence Hospital first opened in 1905, after the Sisters of Providence purchased the Monte Cristo hotel and converted it into a hospital with 75 beds. It was staffed by 11 Sisters and 3 other employees. In its first year, the new hospital served over 400 patients. In 1923, the Sisters of Providence borrowed $200,000 and built a new hospital with 126 beds adjacent to the old site. It underwent a further $14.5 million renovation in 1962.

General Hospital was founded by the Women's Book Club of Everett in 1894, the cornerstone being laid in an existing building at 3322 Broadway. In 1923, a group of businessmen rallied the community and raised $150,000 to purchase a new site and construct a modern hospital with 74 beds, which opened in 1924. It further expanded to 127 beds in 1949, and a seven-story, $782,000 patient care tower was completed in 1965. In 1990, The hospital elected to change its name to General Hospital Medical Center.

In 1994, under the sponsorship of Providence Health & Systems (then called Sisters of Providence Health Systems), Providence Hospital and General Hospital Medical Center merged becoming Providence General Medical Center. The name was changed again in 2000 to Providence Everett Medical Center. In 2002, the five-story Pavilion for Women and Children opened at the Pacific campus. It was followed by the establishment of Providence Everett Healthcare Clinic in 2004. In 2007, Providence partnered with local care providers to open the Providence Regional Cancer Partnership, offering comprehensive outpatient oncology programs. In 2008, to better reflect its role in the area, the hospital changed its name to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett.[2] To this day, both campuses resulting from the merger are still in operation, General Hospital as the Colby Campus and Providence Hospital as the Pacific Campus.

PRMCE is one of a handful of Level II trauma centers in Washington state. It currently has the busiest emergency room in the northwestern United States.
