We care about our community. We know you do too.

Four-thousand local citizens witnessed the launch of United General Hospital in 1965. Now United General Medical Center, the hospital joined the PeaceHealth system in 2014 to ensure continued local access to specialized, sustainable, and innovative healthcare. As a 25-bed critical access hospital, United General supports a 2,000 square mile primary service area defined as the boundaries of Skagit County Public Hospital District #304. In addition to Sedro-Woolley and Burlington, this includes the rural towns of Concrete, Bow, Lyman, Marblemount, Rockport, Clear Lake, and Hamilton.

In addition to general acute care, a 24/7 Level IV emergency department, surgery, and swing beds, United General provides various specialty services including breast care, cardiology, a cancer center, diagnostic imaging, gastroenterology, neurology, pulmonary rehabilitation, pulmonology, and orthopedics.

Your support of United General Medical Center helps to ensure access to exceptional clinicians and advanced technology for your family, friends and neighbors in familiar and nurturing surroundings.

PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center Foundation is the fiscal agent for philanthropy at United General. Gifts given to United General funds will stay local and support communities in Skagit County.

Every gift is meaningful. Thank you.
