Summit Pacific ranked 10th most beautiful hospital

After a nationwide vote, Summit Pacific Medical Center in Elma placed 10th in Soliant Health’s 20 Most Beautiful Hospitals in America list.

“Our team put a lot of thought behind each design decision made during the construction of Summit Pacific,” CEO Renee Jensen said. “We have been and continue to be passionate about bringing the same level of care and facilities seen in larger urban areas to our small community. So it’s really exciting see our community’s support result in a national ranking for both our facility and the city of Elma.”

The sixth annual contest brought 248,116 votes, more than 6,500 of which went to Summit Pacific. The Elma hospital opened last year.

Only one other Washington hospital made the list: Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center in Vancouver at No. 18. To see the full list, visit
