Hospitals vote to partner with PeaceHealth

Metro

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. – Skagit Valley Hospital and Cascade Valley Hospital will soon begin negotiations to partner with PeaceHealth/UW Medicine.

The hospital boards voted last night to begin talks on the partnership.

Island Hospital’s board voted not to pursue a partnership at this time.

The three public hospital districts in Mount Vernon, Arlington, and Anacortes formed an alliance in November 2011, seeking to cut costs, attract physicians, and add more local services and specialty care.
