On Jan. 1, 2020, Northwest Hospital will become “UW Medical Center – Northwest,” a second campus of the UW Medical Center.  The current campus of UW Medical Center will be “UW Medical Center – Montlake,” a nod to its location near the Montlake Cut, the easternmost part of the ship canal that connects Lake Washington to Puget Sound.

Northwest Hospital opened in 1960 and became an entity of UW Medicine in 2010. It retains its “Northwest” roots as a dependable healthcare provider for the surrounding neighborhoods.

“Being the second campus of UW Medical Center will help in the expansion of services on the Northwest campus. The great care and service that Northwest Hospital has offered the community for nearly 60 years will continue with even greater access to specialty care,” said Cindy Hecker, executive director of UW Medical Center.
