The Orcas Island Health Care District is hosting a Town Hall meeting to update the community on the status of the Medical Clinic Operator Request for Proposal that closes on June 26. The meeting will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, June 30th from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.

You will hear how the current two-clinic structure is impacting the long-term sustainability of health care, and activities leading up to the release of the RFP in early May. The Board will then review how the RFP was designed to solicit responses to show how a consolidated clinic could address the financial and operational needs of the community, providers, and staff.

Being that responses to the RFP will have only recently been received, this meeting will not go into significant detail as to the specifics of the responses. A second Town Hall is scheduled for July 9th, at which time the Commissioners will be prepared to provide details about the organizations and their proposal.

The format will include a brief presentation by the Board, and the majority of time will allow for community questions and feedback. Details to access the meeting can be found on the Calendar Tab of the District website, and are listed below:
