Skagit Regional Health - Mount Vernon Surgery Center
About the Project
The Skagit Regional Health – Mount Vernon Surgery Center will be located just north of the Skagit Valley Hospital, facing 13th Street. Building completion is expected in December 2023.
This new 60,000-square-foot outpatient surgery center and medical office building features a patient-focused design and will be home to a variety of surgical specialties. The building will have four operating rooms, three endoscopy suites and one procedure room; diagnostic imaging and clinics totaling 62 outpatient exam rooms for Gastroenterology; Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT); and Orthopedics and Sports Medicine.
“This new Mount Vernon Surgery Center will help us better meet the needs of our surgical patients with a facility and environment that is designed specifically for outpatient procedures,” said Skagit Regional Health Chief Executive Officer Brian Ivie. “We are excited to begin this project and have a surgery center that improves access to safe, quality care.”
Outpatient surgery centers are a trend nationally and are often a preference for patients.
“A surgery center provides a more streamlined experience for patients, because it’s a smaller venue, it’s easy to get in and out and the entire facility is designed and dedicated to outpatient procedures,” said Kelly Bradford, Regional Director of Surgical Services. “This will be a one-stop shop with many patient-focused enhancements and the latest surgical technology.”
Specialists in orthopedics, urology, general surgery, podiatry, plastic surgery, ENT, gynecology, orthopedic spine surgery, gastroenterology and other surgical specialties will provide services in the new surgery center.
The addition of the Mount Vernon Surgery Center will relieve pressure on the six operating rooms at Skagit Valley Hospital, where the focus will remain with patients who will need to receive hospital care following surgery and emergent procedures.
“Patients will receive the same fantastic care at the surgery center as they do at the hospital,” Bradford said. “The addition of a surgery center expands our ability to continue to care for the people of our community.”
The new building will offer a convenient location, easy access, patient pick-up area and ample parking.
