Forks Community Hospital
Forks Community Hospital is a public hospital district of Clallam County. Since 1949, Forks Community Hospital has offered medical care to residents of the West End.
Forks Community Hospital is a 15-bed acute care inpatient facility and 20-bed long-term care facility serving approximately 11,500 residents of western Clallam and Jefferson counties (the "West End"). The West End is isolated from the rest of the Olympic Peninsula by the vast land holdings of Olympic National Park, Olympic National Forest, and the State of Washington's Department of Natural Resources. It is also home to three Native American tribes, the Hoh, Quileute, and Makah.
