services, we are certified to offer Swing
Beds, a program designed for patients who no longer

basis. This care can prepare a patient for returning home or for
'transitioning' to long-term care. Our Discharge Planning staff works closely
with patients and their families to ensure a smooth process from one level of care to another.
KVH Hospitalists Program: an Investment in Community Health
KVH Hospitalists are medical physicians who specialize in the care of hospitalized patients. They work as partners with primary care providers, emergency physicians, and other KVH specialists to provide the highest standard of care during a patient's hospital stay.
Because KVH hospitalists are on-site 24/7, care decisions can be made quickly. This helps prevent medical complications and reduce hospital stays. Best of all, they have extensive training and hospital experience in caring for severely ill or injured patients.
Positive working relationships with medical facilities outside
of our service area ensure patient access to cardiac, trauma and
neonatal intensive care services. Our Life Flight medivac
service enables air transfers of serious trauma patients to Legacy
Emanuel Hospital in Portland, Oregon, the region's closest Level
1 Trauma Center, as well as other specialty hospitals.
As an institutional
member of the U of WA Family Medicine Spokane Rural Residency
Training Program and the Columbia Gorge Community College and Heritage College Nursing Programs, Klickitat Valley Hospital
serves as a training site for doctors and nursing professionals
who, in turn, help to keep rural healthcare vibrant and growing.
In The Future
Public support for the hospital has been strong since it's inaugural
in 1949, and continues today. Our latest bond measure has funded
a 20,000 sq. ft. building addition that includes a new Diagnostic
Imaging Department, enlarged Emergency Services capacity and numerous
technology and facility upgrades.
