WhidbeyHealth town hall meeting slated

WhidbeyHealth officials are heading to South Whidbey as part of an ongoing effort to increase public trust in the institution.

CEO Ron Telles and Hospital Commissioner Grethe Cammermeyer will provide information and answer questions at a town hall meeting 5 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 18, at the Langley United Methodist Church.

Telles and Cammermeyer will give a presentation covering the public hospital district’s financials, recruitment and a quality report, according to a press release.

Additionally, there will be a dedicated time period for questions and answers from the community.

At last month’s hospital district meeting, Telles mentioned the preliminary community survey results did not show a favorable impression of WhidbeyHealth. The hospital’s low patient volume has been a primary factor in its recent financial distress.
