EvergreenHealth Monroe (formerly Valley General Hospital) is the only emergency room serving our Skykomish Valley. That means we carry a heavy responsibility for our community.
Our public hospital is open 24 hours every day, with an emergency room staffed by specially trained doctors and nurses who work tirelessly to deliver life-saving care to everyone who comes through our doors.
EvergreenHealth Monroe’s Emergency Room staff includes board-certified doctors in emergency medicine, registered nurses trained in advanced cardiac support, pediatric advanced life support and trauma core course certified, and specially trained physician assistants. Our talented staff is fully certified to handle any medical emergency, whether patients are facing life-threatening illnesses or accidents. They deliver high quality, safe, and compassionate care to our community.
EvergreenHealth Monroe’s emergency room staff face more pressure to deliver life-saving care as our community population continues to grow. That’s one of the main reasons why your public hospital is seeking community support for approval of a levy lift this April 23rd.
As part of Prop 1, our community can find comfort in the knowledge that even more talented doctors are nearby to deliver life-saving care in the event of a health emergency.
Additional funding from this levy lift (Prop 1 on your ballot) would allow us to hire additional on-call general surgeons for our emergency room. As part of Prop 1, our community can find comfort in the knowledge that even more talented doctors are nearby to deliver life-saving care in the event of a health emergency.
Prop 1 would also allow for EvergreenHealth Monroe to seek a state-approved upgrade from a Level 4 to a Level 3 Trauma Center. Updated medical equipment would empower our doctors and nurses to provide the best emergency care available to our community. Rather than needing to transfer patients to a different trauma center, more patients could receive immediate care at EvergreenHealth Monroe — keeping them closer to their family and friends.
Prop 1 would also allow for EvergreenHealth Monroe to seek a state-approved upgrade from a Level 4 to a Level 3 Trauma Center.
Approving Prop 1 means ensuring members of our community receive the best possible care from specially-trained staff, especially during a health emergency. It means our highly-trained staff has the medical equipment they need to provide life-saving care.
Help us continue serving our community with exceptional, high-quality patient care by adding needed doctors and nurses to our emergency room staff, and upgrading our emergency room medical equipment. Please vote to Approve Prop 1.
