Our Strong Commitment to LCCHC continues as we fundraise for our new Hospital!

Supporters for a new hospital outline the footprint of the proposed building with a human chain, February 11, 2017.

Lake Chelan Community Hospital & Clinics, Chelan County Public Hospital District No. 2, is a 25-bed critical access hospital in Chelan. Medical services include a 24/7 emergency room, surgery, childbirth, paramedic-level ambulance service, addiction recovery, and inpatient/outpatient care services, including lab and radiology.

The current round concrete 45-year-old facility sits on a landlocked site with single access via a steep, narrow residential road and inadequate parking. The building is inadequate with inefficient infrastructure systems (sewage, electrical, plumbing, HVAC). Patient rooms are small and shared, and with insufficient space for radiology, laboratory, and patient service areas. In-depth financial analysis studies showed that remodeling would cost more than building a new structure.

In April 2017, the Lake Chelan Valley passed a $20 million bond to build a new hospital on hospital-owned property at Chelan Apple Blossom Drive, across from the newly-constructed Columbia Valley Community Health Clinic. The new hospital will have private patient rooms, larger birthing rooms, increased outpatient capacity and a bigger emergency room. It will also have space for rehabilitative therapy, laboratory and radiology, as well as an expanded surgery department and a helicopter pad for emergency transfers. The fully ADA accessible hospital will be designed for cost effectiveness.

The Lake Chelan Health & Wellness Foundation has made a commitment to continue to fundraise for the new hospital, and we are proud to accept this role and responsibility! Please visit our website often for news and updates!
