SEATTLE, Wash. – The relationship between PeaceHealth and UW Medicine has become a little closer as more hospitals merge in order to prepare for Obamacare.

The organizations have signed an agreement to make UW Medicine the first choice for specialized care for patients in PeaceHealth’s Northwest Network.

The collaboration will allow the hospitals to increase patient access and reduce costs by sharing resources.

PeaceHealth is also considering a partnership between Skagit Valley Hospital and Cascade Valley Hospital.
