Skagit Regional Health (Skagit) is a leading health system providing a full range of advanced, quality and comprehensive care services to communities in northwest Washington. A long-time member of the Institute for Diversity in Health Management, Skagit is dedicated to exceeding patient expectations, improving the health of their population, and eliminating disparities in care by strengthening diversity initiatives and emphasizing patient safety and quality care.


Named a Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality in Human Rights Campaign’s 2016 Healthcare Equality Index, leaders from Skagit will discuss their journey toward becoming a top health care provider—including their strategies for success, why the journey is not over and what’s next.
