Morton General Hospital is a 25-bed Critical Access Hospital (CAH) located in Morton, Wash, serving a 900-square-mile area and encompassing approximately 10,000 residents.

We boast of a hospital facility that is just a little more than a decade old.... The service area of the hospital (including surgery, emergency, diagnostic imaging, laboratory, dietary, general services and administration offices) was opened in 2006. The patient-room wing was constructed in 1992 as a long-term care center and later adapted to acute-care patient rooms.
We constructed a new wing in 2012 to offer a sleep lab facility as well as a greatly-enlarged physical therapy department on the first floor and office spaces on the second floor.
