07/28/2008: "SJIMC Trauma Center Recertified"

The Inter Island Medical Center has been recertified as a Level V Trauma Center by the Washington State Department of Health. This designation confirms that the IIMC, while operating as a rural health clinic, provides 24/7 emergency care by specially trained physicians and staff. All state-mandated trauma training, equipment and emergency management procedures are in place.

“We appreciate receiving this recertification as a Level V Trauma Center. We will continue to provide 24-hour emergency care to all Hospital District residents and visitors,” said Beth Gieger, Administrator of Inter Island Medical Center. “I want to especially commend the physicians and staff whose dedication to planning, training and always available service makes this level of community care possible.”

The physicians and staff of the Inter Island Medical Center in Friday Harbor have adopted the mission statement "Caring, Healing, Serving: Our Mission is You". The IIMC is an agency of the San Juan County Public Hospital District No. 1.

The District’s mission is to provide expanded and enhanced healthcare services to residents in its district and to promote healthy choices and behaviors through community education, and access to care otherwise not available to all residents of San Juan County.
