Serving the Community with Care
United General Hospital has been a vital part of the community for more than 40 years. The hospital serves Public Hospital District 304, including Burlington, Sedro-Woolley, Bayview, Samish Island, Concrete, Marblemount, Clear Lake and areas of Mount Vernon — over 2,000 square miles in Skagit (and parts of Whatcom) County. The hospital is governed by a five-member board of commissioners.
We offer highly personalized care in a quiet, healing environment. In addition to our excellent staff, we are very proud of the state-of-the-art technology we have installed to ensure quality and safety. From the new linear accelerator in our North Puget Cancer Center, to the fully computerized Sleep Disorders Center, and the wireless, voice-activated communication systems used throughout our facility, we provide high-tech health care in a friendly, rural setting.
Services at United General include comprehensive cancer care at our North Puget Cancer Center — we were the first to provide radiation oncology services in Skagit County and continue to offer the most advanced treatment options north of Seattle. We also provide an emergency department staffed with specially trained doctors and nurses; a diagnostic imaging center that offers everything from x-ray to digital mammograms to MRI; a comprehensive Surgery Center; pulmonary rehabilitation; physical, occupational and speech therapy; the only certified diabetes education program in the area; and much more.
We also offer Wellness 360, a community education program that emphasizes all-around health. Classes provide valuable information about nutrition, exercise, stress management and many other health topics; screenings and risk assessments are also provided. United General hosts an annual women’s health fair and many other special events for the public.
The hospital employees and volunteers are actively involved in the community. The hospital’s speakers bureau provides free presentations to clubs and organizations; an employee council spearheads a variety of fundraisers for service agencies; and the hospital’s unique “Bedpan Brigade” has delighted many parade-goers throughout the Skagit Valley.
