Our combined system builds upon the scale and expertise of our nearly 300 sites of care, including 11 hospitals and nearly 5,000 physicians and providers. Together, we are empowered to make an even greater impact on the health and well-being of our communities.

CHI Franciscan and Virginia Mason are now united to build the future of patient-centered care across the Pacific Northwest.

We utilize Epic as our electronic health record.

Our patient population includes GI bleeds, DKA, acute renal failure, acute stroke, MI, and sepsis to name a few. Our PCU patients and stable ICU patients are cared for by our FIT (Franciscan Inpatient Team) providers and our ICU patients are cared for by our Pulmonary Intensivists.
