Skagit Valley Hospital Access to Entrances Time Change Starts Sept. 2

Aug 26, 2019, 11:00 AM
Skagit Valley Hospital updates access hours of exterior doors

Beginning September 2, all exterior doors at Skagit Valley Hospital will be open from 5:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. daily. This is a change from the previous practice of keeping the exterior doors unlocked until 9:00 p.m. The Emergency Department (ED) doors will remain open to the public 24/7, unless the facility goes into a “lockdown” status.

The change is prompted by our focus on safety and providing our employees, patients and visitors with a safe, secure environment. A single point of entry during the overnight hours will control access flow and improve safety and security throughout the facility.

The updated business hours will be posted on each exterior door to Skagit Valley Hospital, directing patients to the ED entrance on the north side of the building after business hours.
