The San Juan County Public Hospital District is a junior taxing district of San Juan County, Washington serving the Town of Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, and the islands of Brown, Pearl, Henry, Spieden, Stuart and Johns.
The District levies two separate property taxes to provide distinct health care services:
One levy helps to fund San Juan Island EMS and MedEvac (less than 30% of total budget) which provides 9-1-1 advanced life support emergency medical response and critical care transport on the ground, marine, and in the air. All of the funds from this levy support San Juan Island EMS and nothing goes to the support of PeaceHealth. This levy will need to be renewed on or before 2016.
The other levy provides a subsidy to offset costs of unfunded and underfunded primary and emergency healthcare provided through Peace Island Medical Center to the residents of the District.
