What if every health care experience felt less institutional and more personal? More convenient. More one-on-one?

Creating that kind of experience will require people, capabilities and technology beyond what any one health system can provide. That’s why Virginia Mason and CHI Franciscan have come together to form Virginia Mason Franciscan Health.

Our Story

United in a fierce commitment to deliver the highest quality care and exceptional patient experience, these two organizations came together in 2020 as natural partners to build a new health system centered around the patient: Virginia Mason Franciscan Health. 

Strengthened by CHI Franciscan’s exceptional system performance and Virginia Mason’s international reputation for quality and innovation, we bring together the region’s brightest health care minds to transform the local health care landscape. With 18,000 team members and staff, and nearly 5,000 employed physicians and affiliated providers, Virginia Mason Franciscan Health provides expert, compassionate medical care at 11 hospitals and nearly 300 sites of care throughout the Puget Sound region. Together, we are empowered to make an even greater impact on the health and well-being of our communities.

Patient-centered Care

At Virginia Mason Franciscan Health, we embrace our community’s uniquely vibrant, active culture by providing holistic and personalized patient-centered care. We are focused not just on treating patients when they are sick, but keeping patients well so they can enjoy fulfilling, healthy lives. The people we serve will benefit from improved convenience and affordability, enhanced online experiences, broadened access to world-class medical experts and increased investment in world-class research, technology and services. 

We are united by a common sense of purpose to improve the health of our communities, to care for those who are most vulnerable, to treat every patient with kindness, empathy, and respect.  Virginia Mason Franciscan Health will serve as a strong voice in defining the future of health care for our region and beyond, including improving the health and access for underserved communities throughout Puget Sound and advancing social justice for all. 

CHI Franciscan and Virginia Mason are names our communities have grown to trust, now united to build the future of patient-centered care across the Pacific Northwest. That means a seamlessly connected system offering quality care close to home. From basic health needs to the most complex, highly specialized care, our patients can count on us to meet their needs with convenient access to the region’s most prestigious experts and innovative treatments and technologies.
