United General Hospital

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.

United General prides itself on personalized care in a quiet, healing environment. In addition to an excellent staff, we embrace state-of-the-art technology to ensure quality and safety. From the new linear accelerator in the cancer care center, to the fully computerized sleep disorders center, and the wireless, voice-activated communication systems, United General is bringing big city technology to its 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 mammograms to MRI; a variety of surgical services; cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation; physical and occupational therapy; the only certified diabetes education program in the area; and 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.

United General is very fortunate to have a very dedicated auxiliary as well as an active foundation, both of which provide financial support.

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 "Bedpan Brigade" has delighted many parade-goers in the Skagit Valley.
