A Message from Superintendent Anne Presson, Orcas Island Health Care District | Letter

Please join leaders from OIHCD and Island Hospital on Thursday, December 17th from 5 – 6 pm. You will hear about their joint vision for the new, single clinic coming to Orcas in the spring of 2021. In addition to primary, acute same-day and after-hours care, Island Hospital’s model will include a close collaboration with all community partners, including Orcas Island Fire & Rescue.

Island Hospital CEO, Charles Hall, will provide an update on the transition plans and what to expect prior to the clinic opening. He will also take the opportunity to provide a COVID update and offer insights into what’s happening regionally. Chief Williams from OIFR has been working closely with Charles and his team to support a collaborative after-hours model and will be on hand to provide an update and answer questions.

We hope you will join us to learn more about the exciting future of health care on Orcas Island. The meeting will be held via Zoom and details will be posted one week prior to the event on the OIHCD website www.orcashealth.org. When you visit the website be sure to register your email to receive notice of future events.

Anne L. Presson, CEBS

Superintendent, Orcas Island Health Care District
