EMS Levy Renewal: February 2022
San Juan County Public Hospital District No. 1 maintains two levies. Its second levy, which is used to fund San Juan Island EMS including all transport and advanced life support services within the District, expires at the end of 2022. The Board has sent this levy to the public for a vote on renewal in the February 8, 2022 election. More information can be found at sjcphd.org/ems.
Integration EMS / Fire
In light of the failure of the November 2nd ballot measure of the San Juan Island Fire and Rescue levy, the Board of Commissioners of the San Juan County Public Hospital District No. 1 has voted to withdraw from the Memorandum of Understanding to integrate EMS with San Juan Island Fire and Rescue dated August 28, 2021. See Resolution 21-561 or go to Meetings: 2021 and scroll to the November 17, 2021 Regular Board Meeting.
The District Board has decided to continue to work with our professional staff and healthcare partners to manage publicly funded healthcare for our community ranging from prehospital emergency care to end of life care, and the needs in between. We will continue to do this in a way that is transparent, fiscally responsible, cooperative, and collaborative with our healthcare partners.
The Hospital District looks forward to continuing to serve our community in a collaborative and respectful way with San Juan Island Fire and Rescue and to build improved professional relationships based on mutual respect and a commitment to serve our residents before, during, and after times of crisis.
On July 29th the Hospital District announced its intention to acquire the Village at the Harbor and significantly expand long-term care options for Hospital District residents. On November 2nd the public voted to increase the Hospital District levy which will allow the Hospital District to move forward with its plans. In the days and weeks ahead, we will keep you up to date on the latest developments and the plans as they develop.
