Central Washington Hospital Wenatchee General Hospital opened in 1912, thanks to generosity of Wenatchee pioneers W.T. Clark and A.Z. Wells, and was later renamed St. Anthony’s. St. Anthony’s merged with Deaconess Hospital in the late 1970’s to become Central Washington Hospital. Today, Central Washington Hospital is a 198 bed facility (including 22 SNF beds), offering acute medical, surgical, oncology, cardiovascular, maternal/child, emergency, and hospitalist services, skilled nursing care, outpatient rehabilitation, home health and hospice services, and maintains Level III adult and pediatric trauma designation.
