WECU® Nonprofit Spotlight

Unity Care NW

Imagine a strong and healthy community where everyone has access to needed medical, dental, behavioral health, and pharmacy services regardless of ability to pay. This is the vision that Unity Care NW is making a reality.

Unity Care NW (UCNW) is a local non-profit Federally Qualified Community Health Center with 4 locations in Whatcom County, serving 1 in 10 residents annually. Their mission is to provide access to high-quality affordable health care for all ages, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. UCNW values accountability for results, the elimination of health disparities, and is committed to increasing the years of healthy life in the people and communities served.

UCNW accepts most insurance plans and has a sliding fee scale to keep care affordable for families and individuals who are low-income or experiencing poverty. Since 2008, UCNWs patient population has increased 74%. They currently serve approximately 20,000 Whatcom County residents. To accommodate this increase, UCNW is pursuing plans to build a new health center off Portal Way in Ferndale.
