A champion of effective health care
The mission of the Pacific Hospital Preservation & Development Authority is to champion effective health care for the vulnerable and disadvantaged in our community.
In 1981, the City of Seattle chartered the Pacific Hospital PDA, placing in our trust the Pacific Hospital and its surrounding campus, a historic Seattle landmark on north Beacon Hill. The Pacific Hospital PDA leases out the property and lease revenues are used to support effective health care for the vulnerable residents of the Seattle-King County.

Since 2003, Pacific Hospital PDA has provided more than $20 million in funding for projects and programs to support health access and reduce health disparities.
The Pacific Hospital PDA property has a colorful history that has engaged a diverse group of community advocates through the years. These leaders have been committed to providing health care access for our community since we first opened our doors.
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.
