When you have cancer, choosing the right place to go for treatment can be a difficult decision.
If you live in Mount Vernon, you may want to stay in your community and receive cancer treatment at a hospital you know and trust. At the same time, you want access to the latest treatment options, including those only available in clinical trials or at a comprehensive cancer center.
The affiliation between Skagit Regional Health (SRH) and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) gives you the best of both worlds—care in your own community by skilled and dedicated oncologists, nurses, and staff, plus access to the resources of SCCA and its founding organizations.
Good cancer care, now even better
Skagit Regional Health in Mount Vernon is a regional community hospital that serves Skagit County, north Snohomish County, and surrounding areas. Cancer care is one of the hospital’s key services, along with surgery, orthopedic services, heart care, and the Family Birth Center.

The affiliation between SCCA and SRH Cancer Care Center gives you more choices. More choices mean an end to one-size-fits-all cancer care.
- Your oncologist at SRH will consult with SCCA oncologists about your diagnosis and treatment.
- You may seek a second opinion from doctors at SCCA.
- If you and your doctors decide that a clinical trial is right for you, you can participate in the trial at SRH.
- If you choose, you may ask for a referral and receive your treatment at SCCA. Your local doctor will remain involved in your care.
