A message from Walla Walla General Hospital

News

Walla Walla General Hospital has had the distinct honor of serving this community for more than 100 years. Since 1899, our goal has been to provide every patient with excellent medical treatment and kind, attentive care in the compassionate spirit of Jesus Christ. Thank you for partnering with us in helping provide health and healing throughout Eastern Washington. It has been our humble honor to serve those who have entrusted us with their care.

We respect the legacy of this hospital, its place in the heart of our community, and the investments we have all made to sustain it for more than a century. Unfortunately, the current volatile healthcare environment, legislative challenges, and consistent low inpatient census have created an unsustainable future for Walla Walla General Hospital.

After tireless efforts to reverse the mounting financial challenges the hospital has faced over the last decade, it is with great sadness that we will be closing Walla Walla General Hospital, Adventist Health Home Care related services and our clinics on Monday, July 24.

Patients needing emergency care in Walla Walla after midnight on July 23 will have access to care at Providence St. Mary Medical Center located at 401 W Poplar St, Walla Walla. Many of our physicians will remain local and are in the process of informing patients of their future plans to provide care.

Most importantly, thank you, our community, for your support.
