Northwest Hospital and UW Medical Center Integration Q&A

Welcome to University of Washington Medical Center – Northwest

As we turn over the new year to 2020, Northwest Hospital & Medical Center is also changing. On January 1, it will become University of Washington Medical Center – Northwest.  UW Medical Center and Northwest Hospital are integrating to become one medical center with two campuses.

What will this mean for our patients?  You will still have the same physicians and other providers that you know and trust. The integration will provide greater and more seamless access to the care that is available at UW Medical Center – Montlake when and if you need that specialized level of care.

What will be different? You’ll see new signage on the Northwest Hospital campus. Employees and physicians will have new name badges with the UW Medical Center logo.  When you receive a bill for your care, it will come from University of Washington Medical Center and University of Washington Physicians (UWP).

Please read our FAQ for more information about the integration.

Thank you for choosing Northwest Hospital & Medical Center — and welcome to University of Washington Medical Center – Northwest on January 1, 2020.
