The following statement was submitted by Summit Pacific regarding the recent news of the City of Montesano’s interest in leaving Public Hospital District #2 and requesting to be annexed into district #1.
As a Public Hospital District, Summit Pacific is dedicated to serving the community and providing access to healthcare in Grays Harbor County. Summit Pacific relies on countless community leaders and partners to live out its mission and fulfill its vision to “build the healthiest community in the Nation.”
Summit Pacific is aware of the ongoing discussions between the City of Montesano and Public Hospital District #2, and the City’s interest in expanding access to healthcare in its community. Summit Pacific serves many residents of Montesano and will continue to do so but remains focused on the construction of its Wellness Center, set to open in early 2019.
Josh Martin, CEO of Summit Pacific stated, “As always, we are committed to working collaboratively with all parties involved to preserve and enhance healthcare services in Grays Harbor County. It is important that we work together to serve all residents who look to us as partners in their health and wellness.”
