New Website Launch Fall 2022

Welcome to

The Association of Washington Public Hospital Districts has served as the trade association for Washington State’s public hospital districts since 1952, first as an unincorporated association and since 1998 as a non-profit corporation. Each of the member public hospital districts is a governmental entity created by state law. Each public hospital district is governed by a board of publicly elected commissioners.


AWPHD contracts with the Municipal Research & Services Center (MRSC) to provide to members legal, policy, and research services related to hospital districts as local (municipal) governments. We encourage AWPHD members to submit legal and policy inquiries to the AWPHD office or directly to MRSC either by calling one of their consultants at (206) 625-1300, or by completing submitting a question through Ask MRSC.
