We’re here to care for you – safely. Patient safety is our top priority at every Summit Pacific location. If you have an urgent care need or your child is a newborn or needs a wellness visit requiring immunizations, please do not delay your visit.
Learn about the steps we’re taking to protect your health and the health of our caregivers.

Summit Pacific understands that many citizens of Grays Harbor County desire to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. We are committed to vaccinating those who want it as quickly as possible. Thank you for your continued support and patience as we work to serve you and all the citizens of Grays Harbor County. Due to the limited supply of vaccine we are directing all who want a vaccine to the Grays Harbor County Mass Vaccination Clinic. Please see information below to schedule a vaccine appointment.
It will still be some time before COVID-19 vaccines are widely available. Until then, all of Washington State’s hospital leaders urge the public to continue taking precautions to protect themselves, their families and their frontline caregivers.

Current Visitation Policy
Visitation is currently, and has been, limited at all Summit Pacific facilities. Summit Pacific continues to monitor the risk of COVID-19 and will continue to adjust visitor restrictions as necessary and required by State and County restrictions. We sincerely appreciate your understanding and your help in keeping our community healthy and safe.
Emergency Department: Patients may have 1 visitor with them at all times. If patient is COVID positive, visitors will be required to wear full personal protective equipment.
Inpatient Unit: COVID negative patients are allowed one visitor per day during visiting hours 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. COVID positive patients are allowed one visitor per day in full personal protective equipment. End-of-life care patients may have two visitors at a time, all hours of the day.
Clinics: All clinic patients are allowed one visitor.
To reduce the number of patients in waiting rooms, and increase physical distancing, Summit Pacific is now offering curbside check-in. Patients seeking care for clinic appointments, lab, physical therapy, diagnostic imaging, or urgent care can call 360-495-5790 upon arriving at Summit Pacific to check in with a registration specialist and then wait for their visit in the comfort of their own vehicles. Emergency department patients can walk into the emergency department, check in, receive an evaluation and then if able, may return to their vehicle to wait. Once caregivers are ready for the patient, the patient will receive a text message or phone call to enter the building, receive a health screening and proceed to their visit.
Virtual Urgent Care & Primary Care Visits
Now offering virtual healthcare visits for patients who want to get care from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Simply connect to your appointment via your smartphone, tablet or computer with camera. No need to download additional apps or software. Patients will receive a link in their email to join the visit.

If You Feel Sick

- Mild symptoms of COVID-19 may be similar to the flu and include: cough and mild fever.
- If you have mild symptoms, consider staying home and increasing rest and fluids.
- Whether you have seasonal flu, the common cold, or something else, it’s important you stay away from others when sick.
- Monitor yourself for worsening fever, coughing and shortness of breath.
- Consider a virtual visit with your primary care provider or our Urgent Care Clinic to talk about your symptoms, if you should get tested, etc.
How to Protect Yourself
You can protect yourself from COVID-19 infection the same ways you protect against the common cold or seasonal flu.
- Wash hands with soap and warm water often for at least 20 seconds each time.
- When hand washing is not an option, using hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol works well.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
- Avoid contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue and then throw the tissue in the trash. Placing it on any other surface will contaminate it with germs.
- Routinely disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces, using a cleaning spray or wipes.
