Improving Health — Saving Lives
Republic is located in Ferry County, in rural northeast Washington. Situated amidst national forest and mountain passes, the region is very rural and geographically isolated from other counties. Ferry County Public Hospital District provides the only hospital in Ferry County, and the closest other hospitals are over 40 miles away over high passes. Because of our remote setting it is vital that the hospital provide skilled critical care.
Our emergency department is staffed by qualified and dedicated providers who have state-of-the-art technology at their disposal. Inland Imaging's staff of board-certified radiologists is available to us 24/7 to interpret x-rays and provide most results within one hour, allowing our providers to make timely, accurate diagnoses. We also have a modern 16-slice CT scanner and an integrated electronic health record system, giving our providers the tools they need to serve the emergency medical needs of Ferry County.
Ferry County Memorial Hospital was established in Republic, Washington in 1945 and moved to its present facility in June of 1974. Until 1989, the Hospital was operated by the Ferry County Hospital Association, a private group composed of members of the community.
Ferry County Public Hospital District #1
Ferry County residents voted to form the Ferry County Hospital District #1 as a public taxing district in 1989. Our residents demonstrate their support of the hospital district through a property tax, which provides financial resources to our organization. This support has been providing $144,703/year on average over the last five years — less than 2% of the hospital district’s annual operating budget.
The public district is composed of the Ferry County Memorial Hospital (which includes a long-term care unit), the Republic Medical Clinic, Curlew Medical Clinic, Klondike Hills Assisted Living and a Rehab/Fitness Center. See Growing for the Future for information on new construction, new equipment, new staff and new procedures available.
