Skagit Valley Hospital
Mount Vernon, Washington, has been called the Best Small City in America. Located on Puget Sound in northwest Washington, halfway between Seattle and Vancouver, Mount Vernon is home to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival and rare trumpeter swans that winter just outside the city limits. Mount Vernon offers excellent schools, medical care, and shopping opportunities, including the Farmers Market. The local community college, Skagit Valley College, is an award-winning school that serves three counties. There are also many opportunities for outdoor activities such as local lakes for fishing, swimming and boating, and a very complex system of walking and bicycle trails.
