The facility has consistently earned the title of one of America’s Best Hospitals by Healthgrades.

Seattle is the largest city in the state of Washington, and is located on Puget Sound. If you aren’t a travel nurse that is afraid of heights, check out the Space Needle! Host to the 1962 World’s Fair, the iconic Space Needle is one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. If you’re a seafood eater, you’re definitely going to want to head to a restaurant to get some salmon! If you have a moment, check out the underground tour of Seattle, definitely a travel nurse must if you’re into learning more about the city. Or if you want to try some delicious dishes, head down to the international district for the specialty deep fried rice dog, or dim sum on the weekends!
