Welcome to Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics
These three words represent the values that have always been the goal of Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics. They are at the core of every decision, every strategy, every step taken. They are everything the Hospital and Clinics stand for. And when you truly believe the values of caring, quality, and community – it doesn’t matter where you are located. Many times over, patients from outside the area have said, “I am so glad I was in your area when I had my medical emergency.”
2013 saw the completion of MGH&FC’s two-year Campus Renewal and Construction Project, which included a new Surgery wing, Laboratory, and Registration area. The Renewal Project touched almost every part of the existing facility, with upgrades to the infrastructure and renovations and expansions to the Emergency Department, Diagnostic Imaging, The Birth Center, the cafeteria (now called “The Bistro”), patient rooms, and nurses’ stations.
Now, all who enter the facility – patients, family, visitors, and the more than 500 employees and volunteers – enjoy the latest in building design and implementation – that is second to none in the region.
MGH&FC is the pride of the region – situated in one of the most beautiful areas in the world – near the Olympic Mountains and Hood Canal. The Pacific Northwest is a popular vacation spot for many people every year.
Ten clinics and a critical access hospital comprise the healthcare system for the area. For the past seven years, MGH&FC has been recognized as one of the nation’s Most Wired Hospitals. It’s technologically advanced information system electronically connects the Hospital and Clinics with online patient records for the most efficient communication and delivery of patient care.
Caring. Quality. Community. You have come to the right place for your healthcare.
This pleasant ambiance is indicative of the overall quality of care at MGH. The combination of highly-qualified and sophisticated clinical care and 'personal touch' help to make MGH the special hospital it is today. MGH has many wonderful qualities to offer patients, family members, visitors, employees and physicians. Private and public tours are available with a simple phone call to MGH.
Despite the negative-growth trends in other hospitals, MGH's admissions, surgeries, births, and emergency room visits continue to increase. This reflects the population growth in the county, the recognition of the quality of care delivered at MGH&FC, the increase in the different specialties available, and the Hospital's added capabilities.

Hospital's Two-Year Campus Renewal And Construction Project Completed - Staff And Physicians Honored
Two years ago, Mason General Hospital broke ground on a 20,000 square-foot, state-of-the art Surgery Wing in Phase 1 of the two-phase Campus Renewal Construction Project. Phase 1 was completed in summer of 2012 with Phase 2 beginning August 2012. Now, with Phase 2 completed, Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics will honor its staff and physicians for their role in making this transformation a reality with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Wednesday, May 15, at 9 a.m. The public is invited to attend the event that is taking place in the Hospital’s North (ER) Entrance. A reception will immediately follow this event.
Phase 1 of the Project created the new Main Entrance, and Surgery Wing comprised of Outpatient Services, a Post Anesthesia Care unit, three new operating suites, two endoscopy rooms, a central sterilization area, a lab draw station, and surgery support space. In addition, upgrades were made to the nurses’ stations and inpatient rooms in the Medical/Surgical/Pediatrics unit and in The Birth Center. To facilitate a healthy environment and promote activity, a mile-long walking path open to patients, staff and visitors was added to the campus grounds, named the “Get Out and Go Trail”.
Phase 2 included expanding the Diagnostic Imaging Department with the addition of an Open MRI unit, and the upgrading and modernization of the Emergency Department. Patient rooms were also updated, the Auxiliary Gift Shop enlarged, new meeting rooms added, and the cafeteria was expanded to what is now called the “Bistro in the Basement”.
“The ground breaking in April 2011 was an exciting time for our community. With an extremely favorable economic climate for construction, we had an extraordinary opportunity to make these high-priority improvements through the Federal stimulus Build America Bonds program and therefore we did not need a voter-approved bond. The Campus Renewal Project has been completed under budget and ahead of schedule and this because of our incredible team of staff members and physicians.” said Scott Hilburn, Hospital Board commissioner. “These improvements will give us the flexibility to respond to future changes in the delivery of local healthcare and assure our continued ability to provide high-quality services. More importantly, hospital services have changed dramatically in the past quarter-century, and MGH&FC is committed to investing in the future of quality healthcare right here, close to home in our community.”
“I am overwhelmed and thrilled by the amount of collaboration, teamwork and esprit de corps demonstrated by the staff and physicians during this time,” said Eric Moll, CEO at MGH&FC. “Their support has been instrumental in making the transformation of our hospital a reality for all of us. I am very excited about acknowledging their outstanding level of dedication and professionalism on May 15 at the Ribbon Cutting ceremony which is dedicated to them. Their work has been the absolute key to the success of the Campus Renewal and Construction Project.”
“As a hospital district we are very proud of our services, equipment, facilities, and our Campus Renewal and Construction Project,” added Hilburn. “What sets MGH&FC apart from other hospitals ‒ larger and smaller – is the care provided by our dedicated physicians and staff members. MGH&FC regularly receives notes of appreciation from patients and their families about the high level of quality care they received”.
