Testimonials

“With the aging of the Chelan Valley population, a healthcare facility incorporating the latest ideas and the most up to date features is vital to meet our changing demographics”

Kathi FedorChelan, WA

“Heard you’re hoping to build a new hospital. You need it! During a visit last summer a friend had to go to the ER. The docs were great….the hospital itself, really old school.” 

Doug OWenatchee, WA

“Quality healthcare services are vital for our valley. A new hospital is a critical piece of that continuum. Having modern facilities that can grow with our future is imperative.”

Rich WatsonManson WA

 “I believe a new hospital in Chelan is way overdue. To attract young families and retirees, plus qualified health care personnel, a new improved hospital is a must”.

Sally Campbell-NelsonChelan, WA

 “I have spent time in our hospital, the care and people are great, but the facility needs to be replaced. The long-term viability of our community depends on the quality and availability of good healthcare”.

Bob MyersManson, WA

“Having had the opportunity to personally compare LCCH to Swedish Hospital in Seattle I can attest to the fact that patient care at LCCH is equal to one of the best hospitals in Seattle.  The difference is in the physical facilities not in the care provided”.

Lester CooperChelan, WA

What’s the Cost?

As a Hospital District member, the additional cost to you and your family will be minimal.  When you use hospital services you can have a credit to your portion of the bill equal to the taxed amount.

If you own a home with a tax assessed value of $300,000 you will pay less than $10 per month — and that’s for your whole family.  A home worth twice that would be less than $20 per month.  It’s a small price to pay for a facility that will serve us for generations to come!

THE BREAKDOWN:
Your $10 per month will support a bond of $20 million.  The Hospital and its Foundation will contribute an additional $24.5 million (through loans and savings) to reach a total New Hospital cost of $44.5 million.  That’s a lot of money.  If we had passed the levy two years ago the price would have been $33 million. The price will keep going up, and that’s a really good reason to support our hospital this time around.  We can’t afford to wait

BRASS TACKS:
The levy will only impact people who pay property tax; 55% of the revenue will come from seasonal residents. The assessment is projected to be $0.38 per $1,000 assessed property value per year.  There’s a button on the home page to calculate your exact amount of increased tax.  The calculation is based on the County Assessor’s valuation of the property, not the real market [resale] value. Here’s a chart:

What is the cost for your family?

Enter your home’s property assessed value in numbers only (don’t add $ or commas). Hit the “Tab” key or Click in the “Your Monthly Cost” box to see your estimated cost per month for the new hospital.  We think you will agree that is a small price to pay for a modern 21st century hospital.
