A champion of effective health care
The PHPDA is chartered by the City of Seattle with stewardship of the landmark Pacific Tower and its surrounding campus. The PHPDA uses lease revenue from the property to fund programs consistent with its mission of decreasing disparities in healthcare access and improving healthcare outcomes among King County's underserved populations. The PDA achieves this goal primarily by making grants to health and social service agencies that provide services and resources to a wide range of communities, with a particular emphasis on traditionally uninsured and underinsured communities of color, immigrants, linguistic minorities, and economically challenged persons.

The Pacific Hospital PDA property has a colorful history that has engaged a diverse group of community advocates through the years.
The Pacific Hospital PDA is led by a volunteer Governing Council. All meetings are open to the public, and the beginning of each meeting is reserved for public comment.
