When Unity Care NW first opened its Ferndale health center in 2007, we served about 2,700 patients who lived in north Whatcom County. Today, our health centers serve more than 7,000 patients living in north Whatcom County.
As the demand for our health care services continues to grow, we are quickly outgrowing our current facilities.
With population growth and increasing demand for our affordable health care services, we anticipate that we will serve 9,500 patients living in north Whatcom County by 2022.
In response to this growing need, we plan to open a new $15 million, expanded health center in 2019 serving north Whatcom County. The new Ferndale health center will offer medical, dental, behavioral health, pharmacy, and lab services to our patients. It will be located at 6060 Portal Way, conveniently located off of I-5 to serve all of Whatcom County. The facility will provide access to more of our neighbors living in north Whatcom County and will also open up capacity at our Bellingham sites by offering comprehensive services closer to home for north Whatcom patients currently receiving care in Bellingham.

We are currently conducting a capital campaign to raise $3 million of the total project cost. Help us ensure access to quality, affordable health care throughout our community by donating now!
