Welcome to Mason General Hospital
When you first enter this critical access hospital you'll walk into a patient waiting area which overlooks a professionally landscaped outdoor courtyard. From rhododendrons, that are native to Washington, to turf lilies you willl experience nature and solitude as you meander your way along the courtyard paths. You may also feel the warm sun on your face, hear the birds sing, and enjoy conversation with friends and family on a bench or at a picnic table.
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.
Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics is one of the Largest Public Employers in Mason County
MGH was first built in 1968, thanks to the generous support of the residents of Mason County. An additional 29,000 square feet were added in 1992, along with many major improvements. The Hospital is part of Public Hospital District No.1, which consists of Mason General Hospital, MGH Ankle & Foot, MGH Eye Clinic, MGH Family Health, MGH Shelton Orthopedics, MGH Surgery Clinic, Oakland Bay Pediatrics, Mountain View Women's Health, and Shelton Family Medicine.
Other services include physical therapy; respiratory therapy; outpatient surgery; diagnostic imaging (including CT scan, ultrasound, digital mammography, fluoroscope, nuclear medicine, MRI, echocardiogram); a modern, full-service laboratory; labor and delivery (with private birthing suites); Wound Care Services; Patient Navigation program; Hospitalist program; continuing education for staff, physicians, and community; diabetes education; private patient rooms; and public meeting rooms.
After several consecutive years of a steady financial performance, coupled with an extremely favorable climate for construction, we are pleased to announce Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics has an extraordinary opportunity to make several high priority improvements over the next two years in the facility. The estimated $33 million cost of these projects will be financed by operating revenues and will not require a taxpayer bond.
These improvements include:
- The addition of a new surgery wing to the existing hospital.
- New operating suites to accommodate new technologies and replace existing rooms that are too small to meet current and future needs.
- An expanded and modernized emergency department to accommodate current and future patient needs and to increase patient privacy and provide more space for waiting patients.
- Upgrades to inpatient rooms and waiting areas to better accommodate patients and families and provide privacy for confidential meetings between doctors and families.
These improvements will implement top priorities in MGH’s Facility Master Plan that is part of Mason General’s ten-year strategic plan, and increase the Hospital’s flexibility that will enable it to respond to future changes in care delivery. We are very excited about this opportunity, and look forward to the added value it brings to the community’s healthcare.
