Skagit Valley Hospital has expanded its facilities and its services to more than double the size of the existing hospital. Key expansion components include a new Emergency Trauma unit; expanded surgical services, including six spacious operating rooms; a new critical care floor with 31 universal rooms to flex with the needs of patients; a new Family Birth Center with 21 labor and delivery rooms, and private patient rooms. The Regional Cancer Care Center brings all of the hospital’s cancer services together in one place.
Skagit Valley Hospital’s affiliation with Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) brings the resources of three internationally renowned cancer care institutions—Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, University of Washington Medicine, and Seattle Children's Hospital—to Skagit Valley Hospital and the surrounding community.
