Thank you to the healthcare providers of Orcas

Orcas Island care providers: thank you for the excellent care you provide for all of us who call Orcas home. We realize how very challenging this transition period has been for each of you. For those who are leaving, we so appreciate the years of dedication and service you have given to keep us healthy. Godspeed. For those remaining, we pledge to support you with patience and understanding as you forge ahead on this quest for continued excellent health care on the island.

Lest we forget, a huge vote of gratitude to all our first responders from the Sheriff’s Office to firefighters, paramedics, EMTs and to the teams at Island Air Ambulance and Airlift Northwest. You answer the call for emergency help 24/7. You give us peace of mind. We are forever grateful!
