The annual readers’ choice awards recognize EvergreenHealth as the Eastside’s top health system for the sixth time in seven years

Kirkland, Wash. – 425 magazine recently recognized EvergreenHealth as the Eastside’s “Best Hospital & Health System” in the publication’s 2019 Best of 425 poll. The award honors EvergreenHealth for the sixth time in seven years for delivering high-quality, comprehensive care and services to patients and their families throughout King and Snohomish Counties.

Each year 425, the Eastside’s premier lifestyle publication, asks readers to vote for their most preferred local organizations, from hotels and museums, to attorneys and health care providers. Thousands of readers participate in the poll, and this year selected EvergreenHealth as the region’s top hospital and health system in the publication’s Best of 425 poll, which is published online and in the May 2019 print issue.

“It is a privilege to be our community’s preferred hospital. Our mission guides us in serving our community with safe, quality, compassionate care every day, and this generous recognition from 425 is a reflection of our providers, staff and volunteers’ commitment to fulfill our purpose. We receive so many letters from grateful patients each year, celebrating their providers for the wonderful experiences they’ve had while in our care, and this recognition from our community is an honor and a testament to our providers,” said Dr. Amy Beiter, EvergreenHealth CEO.

EvergreenHealth has earned the Best of 425 for the past three years in a row, and was also recognized for three consecutive years between 2013 – 2015. This year’s winners were celebrated at the Best of 425 awards event held on April 24 at Ascend Prime Steak and Sushi in Bellevue.

EvergreenHealth serves the Eastside community and beyond with comprehensive care and services, and includes a 318-bed acute care medical center in Kirkland and 72-bed sister hospital in Monroe, 12 primary care practices, five urgent care centers, more than two dozen specialty care practices and 24/7 emergency care at its Kirkland, Monroe and Redmond campuses.
