Survey on Long-Term Care Services in San Juan County Currently Being Conducted

San Juan County Public Hospital District No. 1, along with the other Hospital Districts in San Juan County and Inter-Island Healthcare Foundation, is in the process of conducting a survey to identify the needs and expectations of Seniors in San Juan County.

The goal of the survey is to evaluate the impacts of long-term care planning over the past three years and determine the efficiency of current initiatives in San Juan County. It will also help Public Hospital District No. 1 with its expansion planning for Village at the Harbor. This survey presents a wonderful opportunity for members of the public to ensure their affirmations, opinions, and concerns are heard and taken into consideration as we move forward with planning.

The survey is funded by a grant from the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy. Further information, along with the link, is listed below:

“The San Juan County Healthcare Districts on San Juan, Orcas and Lopez Islands, together with the Inter Island Healthcare Foundation, are inviting you to participate in an online survey regarding the need for community-based long-term care services, including current and future caregiving needs.

Your input is critical to informing County-wide planning efforts designed to evaluate services and supports necessary to help County seniors age in place.

This survey should take no more than 10 minutes and can be found in the link or QR code below. Thank you in advance for your time.”

San Juan County Public Hospital District #1 currently operates the San Juan Island EMS and Village at the Harbor. The District pays a large subsidy to support PeaceHealth Peace Island Medical Center.
