Northwest Hospital & Medical Center joins the UW Medicine Health System

Press Release, 1/4/2010
Affiliation Q&A
Press Release, 9/17/2009

We are pleased to announce that Northwest Hospital & Medical Center will join and become an integral part of the UW Medicine health system.

On January 1, 2010, Northwest Hospital & Medical Center officially affiliated with the UW Medicine Health System. It joined the six other UW Medicine entities, including Harborview Medical Center, University of Washington Medical Center, UW Medicine Neighborhood Clinics, University of Washington Physicians, Airlift Northwest and the UW School of Medicine.

With this affiliation, we will be able to give our community access to the additional breadth and depth of services and expertise of one of the top medical institutions in the country. We believe our patients will benefit from the combination of Northwest Hospital's community focus, personalized patient care environment and history of technological innovation and the broader strength of UW's clinical excellence, teaching and research mission.

This is an exciting new chapter in Northwest Hospital’s history. This affiliation offers the best of both worlds – the chance to explore new possibilities in expanding and enhancing our campus and our services, while allowing us to preserve our unique culture and heritage.

We welcome your questions and comments. We invite you to read our Q & A, or please e-mail us at patientrelations@nwhsea.org or phone 206-368-1609 if you’d like to share your thoughts.
