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, Johns, and some smaller islands*.
The District levies two separate property taxes to provide distinct health care services:
One levy helps to fund San Juan Island EMS which provides 9-1-1 advanced life support emergency medical response and critical care transport for ground and marine services . All of the funds from this levy support San Juan Island EMS and nothing goes to the support of PeaceHealth.
The second levy, the subsidy to PeaceHealth, is to offset costs of healthcare services within the District for charitable healthcare services, emergency department services, and the provision of physician services provided through Peace Island Medical Center to the residents of the District.
See the Documents Tabs for further details. The balance of the levy after the subsidy payment to PeaceHealth is applied to the operations of the San Juan County Public Hospital District #1.
