We offer medical, dental, behavioral health, and pharmacy services at three locations in Whatcom County--Bellingham, Ferndale, and Point Roberts. Employing more than 200 caring and compassionate employees, we ensure access to high-quality, affordable health care for all and work to increase the years of healthy life in the communities and patients we serve.
Unity Care NW is a nonprofit, federally qualified community health center, which has provided care to individuals and families regardless of their ability to pay since 1982. We began as a collaborative program of the Interfaith Coalition of Whatcom County, the Opportunity Council, and the Whatcom County Medical Society.
As we expanded our services over the years and provided care to a increasing number of patients, we became self-governed under our own nonprofit, tax-exempt status. Fifty-one percent of our board members are health center patients, and the other 49 percent are members of our community at large.
In 2016, we provided medical, dental, and behavioral health care to more than 19,000 patients throughout Whatcom County.
