United General Rated Among Best in State
United General Hospital has consistently been rated one of the top hospitals in Washington state for our care of patients with pneumonia, heart failure, or heart attack, based on what are known as the Appropriate Care Measures or Process of Care Measures. The rating is an indicator of high-quality, safe patient care, and compares United General to all other hospitals in the state.
See below for an example of how United General Hospital has ranked among other facilities in Skagit County. The most current information can be found at Hospital Compare, a website maintained by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Our success is the result of continuous quality and safety initiatives undertaken by managers and staff at United General.
We could not have reached this milestone without the
enthusiasm and dedication of everyone at United. Our
goal is to remain among the top five hospitals in the state.
Our community deserves the very best care.
