Pacific Hospital Preservation & Development Authority
The Pacific Hospital Preservation & Development Authority’s (PHPDA) mission is to decrease disparities in healthcare access and healthcare outcomes among the Puget Sound region's underserved populations. PHPDA achieves this goal 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.
In 1981, the City of Seattle chartered the PHPDA, 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 uses lease revenues to support effective health care for vulnerable King County residents.
