Skagit Valley Hospital is a 137-bed public hospital located in Mt. Vernon, in the US State Washington. Founded in 1958, the hospital was organized as a Public District operating in Skagit Valley Public Hospital District #1. The hospital operates two osteopathic residency programs, in internal medicine and family medicine. The hospital is operated by Skagit Regional Health, which is partnered with the Cascade Valley Hospital in Arlington.

History[edit]

Skagit Valley Hospital was founded in 1958. The operations of the hospital are overseen by a seven-member Board of Commissioners, elected by the district's constituents. On July 1, 2010, Skagit Valley Hospital acquired Skagit Valley Medical Center, a multi-specialty medical group, with facilities in six locations in the Skagit Valley. As of the acquisition the former Medical Center facilities was renamed Skagit Regional Clinics. The combined organization is now known as Skagit Regional Health, which also acquired Cascade Valley Hospital in Arlington in 2016.

Graduate medical education[edit]
