Community Q&A Document is Posted

As part of the Request for Proposal (RFP) for Medical Clinic Operator, the OIHCD has been capturing questions from the community and providing answers that were relevant based on what stage we were at in the process.

The RFP process concluded with a presentation by Island Hospital on July 30th, and at the August 4th Regular Board meeting the motion to pursue contract negotiations with Island Hospital was unanimously approved by the Board. Commissioners Pegi Groundwater and Art Lange were appointed as the Negotiations Committee, and they have begun the process of entering into discussions with the leadership of Island Hospital.

As we move through this next phase, we encourage you to continue to submit questions to any of the Commissioners or our Superintendent. Contact information can be found on the Contact Us Tab, and you can either call or email us. The Q&A document will be updated on a routine basis, and we hope that it proves to be an informative and useful document for members of our community. Please click HERE to access the current version of the Q&A.

This has been a long and thoughtful process, and we have appreciated the large number of you who have engaged with us individually or through our Town Halls. We look forward to the possibility of a consolidated clinic on Orcas that supports all patients, providers and staff.
