The key function of a hospital district is to provide high-quality health services, primarily in rural communities. Without critical access hospitals and local health services, residents may need to travel great distances for care, or may not receive care at all.
In 2014, PeaceHealth assumed responsibility for all hospital and medical services. Operation of United General Hospital is now under their direction as PeaceHealth United General Medical Center and services include emergency, cancer, and secondary care. United General District 304 maintains ownership of most hospital buildings, grounds, and other assets under oversight from our five elected commissioners.
