DISTRICT OVERVIEW

Our Administrative Structure
Klickitat Valley Health is a nonprofit care provider, operated by Public Hospital District #1 of Klickitat County, Washington and owned by the citizens of the district. An elected Board of Commissioners, comprised of five community members who serve six-year terms, governs the District. Union employees of the District are represented by SEIU, Local 1199 NW.


The KVH Campus encompasses several facilities that include Klickitat Valley Hospital, KVH Family Medicine, and Home Health & Hospice.

Building On Our Past
In April of 1946, the community of Goldendale became the first in the state to take advantage of the new Hill-Burton Act. The Act was established to assure health care services in rural communities and provided low interest money to help rural providers construct new facilities or enhance existing services.
Over the years the District has garnered strong community support, enabling facility renovations in 1959, 1969 and 1986.

Community support for our latest bond measure in 2005 funded a 20,000 sq. ft. Hospital addition that includes a new Diagnostic Imaging Department and enlarged Emergency Services capacity, along with numerous technology and facility upgrades.

Investing In Our Future
One thing you can count on – healthcare is in a constant state of change. As new research and treatments become available, technologies improve and skillsets need to be updated. Over the history of the District, the facilities of KVH have grown to incorporate these developments and keep current with state requirements. We consistently seek opportunities to develop new programs and services which meet community needs, while contributing to the District's financial viability.

Our Most Valuable Asset: Our Personnel
Meeting the challenge of rural healthcare depends on our most valuable asset: the staff of medical professionals who take pride in providing quality care in a friendly "hometown" environment. Our team of doctors, nurses, therapists, technologists, home health aides, administrators, facility maintenance and support staff don't just care for our community - they're a part of it. As one of the major employers in the county, Klickitat Valley Health really is about caring for our families, friends and neighbors.
