From our inception in 1911 as Bronson Hospital located in a two-story house near downtown Renton to the creation of Public Hospital District No. 1 in 1947, to the relocation to a building lovingly known as the "wagon wheel" and subsequent relocation in the 1960's to our current home, Valley has deep roots in our local community, caring for generations of patients and families in South King County.
Today, Valley is a major medical center and clinic network, housing a 341-bed hospital, a network of more than 50 primary, urgent and specialty care clinics and an array of outreach and wellness programs across South King County. We have remained true to our public hospital mission to care for all comers regardless of ability to pay and are dedicated to ensuring we serve all populations within our diverse community with respect and compassion.
Valley serves 600,000 community members, delivering nearly 4,000 babies annually and treating 90,000 community members through our Emergency Department & Level III Trauma Center, making us one of the busiest ED's on the west coast.
Help Us Continue to Meet the Needs of Our Community
Valley continually works to care for our community by improving access to high-quality care for all and optimizing and/or expanding vital programs and services.

Critical Support Needed Now!
Currently, our most pressing need is support for our Greatest Needs Fund. Valley has been on the forefront of the COVID-19 response for several years now and it has significantly impacted our staff, operations and finances. Donations to the Greatest Needs Fund provide support for patient needs and vital projects not covered by other directed funds.
We invite you to learn more about all of our areas of support at Valley!
