With personalized, professional medical care, a new state-of-the-art patient wing, private healing suites with unparalleled views, Skyline Hospital has redefined rural health care in the Columbia Gorge.
Skyline is a critical access, acute care hospital that gives our community quality care in the areas of emergency and trauma care, surgery, cardiopulmonary, laboratory, and radiology. Our mission is to be the choice for life-long health care in the Gorge by providing quality services with compassion. You are in good hands at Skyline.
Our general surgeon is a designated trauma doctor and our 24/7 emergency department doctors are some of the finest in the Gorge (with the only FAA-approved hospital-based heli-pad in the Gorge). Our specialty clinic includes medical experts in everything from cardiology to orthopedics. Our dedicated team of physical therapists includes the only certified sports medicine specialist in the Gorge and therapists with specialties from vestibular rehabilitation to hand injuries.
Skyline Hospital has 18 healing rooms—with one-on-one medical care—50 participating doctors, and a staff of 170. The hospital’s board has five members that represent the community it serves.
White Salmon is 60 miles east of Vancouver, WA, in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and the Cascade mountains. Skyline Hospital itself sits on a bluff above the mighty Columbia River with breathtaking views up and down the Gorge and snow-capped Mt. Hood in the distance. Throughout the spring and summer, windsurfers and kite boarders dot the river below in this stretch of the river that is regularly referred to as one of the top five windsurfing areas in the world.
Skyline is governed by a five-member Board of Commissioners. The core group of Medical Staff personnel are the family medicine physicians of the NorthShore Medical Group, whose offices and clinic are located on the Skyline campus. They also operate a clinic in Stevenson, WA. In addition, specialty physicians from throughout the area enjoy privileges at Skyline.
