Our Community

Our public hospital district covers 1,200 square miles between the summit of Stevens Pass to the summit of Blewett Pass, including the towns of Plain, Peshastin and Dryden. Our facility is located in the heart of Leavenworth, a charming Bavarian-themed town with year-round recreation. The view from our Family Practice Clinic is the stunning skyline of the Enchantments and Tumwater Mountain. A block away, nature trails along Blackbird Island follow the Wenatchee River through forest and wetland.

In spring, apple and pear orchards bloom as the rivers swell with world-class whitewater rafting. The summer offers access to hundreds of rock climbing routes, mountain biking, hiking trails and lazy floats down the river. Prime festival season begins with the Autumn Leaf Festival, Oktoberfest and Christmas Lighting. In the winter, the Upper Valley stays active with cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, downhill skiing and snowboarding.

As a community-owned, critical access facility, Cascade Medical is devoted to the well-being of our neighbors and visitors of this incredible place. Every Monday evening, we offer our exam rooms and our staff donates time for Upper Valley MEND’s Free Clinic program. Our doctors and staff are also involved in community groups, youth outreach, sports and promoting an active lifestyle.
