We are proud to hold deep roots in our community as the foundation for this hospital originally formed from the need to help safely deliver babies. We understand the unique population of families that Whidbey Island supports and are so excited you are choosing to welcome your baby to the world on Whidbey Island.

Our unit has beautiful and spacious rooms that provide you with the comfort of home in a hospital setting. During your stay you may enjoy your time in our two-person, jetted Jacuzzi tub and you will have access to your own personal fridge equipped in each patient room. Our rooms contain a couch that has the luxury of turning into a sleeping bed for your support person.

We are extremely proud to be a part of this experience for you and your family. Our providers, nurses, and staff strive to make this your own individual experience.
