Valley Medical Center, UW, schedule public meetings on strategic alliance: Here are the dates

Valley Medical Center has scheduled six public meetings where the public can get information and ask questions about the proposed strategic alliance with UW Medicine.

Under the alliance, Valley Medical Center would affiliate with UW Medicine, which has similar arrangements with Northwest Hospital in Seattle. Also part of UW Medicine are Harborview Medical Center and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
