The first anniversary Open House is noon to 4 p.m. this Sunday, Nov. 17, at PIMC, 1117 Spring Street in Friday Harbor. For off-islander visitors a shuttle will meet each ferry that arrives between noon and 4 p.m., providing free transportation to Peace Island.
PeaceHealth Peace Island Medical Center grew out of collaborative planning with Islanders to provide much-needed access to hospital facilities and specialty care.
Among the “firsts” achieved since PIMC opened in November 2012:
- First life-saving emergency blood transfusion;
- First pediatric procedural sedation for lumbar puncture;
- First cardiac treadmill for Emergency Department (ED) patient; and
- First ED mental health evaluation.
