Castell Insurance has earned the reputation of
being a family-owned and community-minded local business with outstanding customer service. Phil Castell has built his business from the ground up and currently has five licensed agents who bring their specialties together to create a full-service agency. These services cover home and auto, health and financial planning. Home and auto insurance is provided by James Castell, Phil’s son. “The value of being an independent agency is that we find quotes from several different companies to find you the most coverage for the best price,” James said. Health insurance services include major medical, Medicare and long-term care. John Coulson, Phil’s brother-in-law, is known around the office as the “guru of health insurance,” and has been selling all forms of health insurance for eight years. Christy Francis has been with the agency for several years and specializes in Medicare Part D and Medicare Supplements. Stephany Shackelford joined Castell Insurance in 2013 and specializes in healthcare for those under 65.
Financial planning is handled by Phil. He specializes in income planning to give clients a steady and reliable income. “We believe that a conservative, slow and steady approach will achieve our client’s goals,” Phil said. He likes to work with retirees and younger people who are planning for their retirement. Sharon is Phil’s wife and is the heart of the office. “When our clients have a question or need, they can just talk to us directly instead of calling an automated toll-free corporate number,” Sharon said. “They can talk to someone who knows them.” Phil is currently president of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce and the agency is a proud sponsor of the Sequim Irrigation Festival, Sequim Centennial and the Dungeness Valley Health & Wellness Clinic’s Annual Fun Walk. “As a locally-owned business, we are committed to supporting our community with our time, energy and resources,” Phil said. Phil extends an invitation to the community to stop by the office, 426 E. Washington St. in Sequim. “The coffee is always on!” he said. For more information about Castell Insurance, phone 360-6839284 or visit their website at castellinsurance.com.

Jefferson Healthcare, a critical access hospital, is owned by the taxpayers of East Jefferson County.
Jefferson Healthcare began as St. John’s Hospital in Port Townsend, which was founded by the Sisters of Providence in 1890. After a long commitment of service to the community, the sisters withdrew from the hospital in 1975. At that time, the hospital operations were taken over by the county as Jefferson County Public Hospital District #2. The hospital was renamed Jefferson General Hospital. In January 2003, the hospital was designated as a critical access hospital. In September 2004, Jefferson General Hospital transitioned into the entity called Jefferson Healthcare. Recognizing that the hospital had grown into a fully
integrated health care system, the hospital commissioners provided the leadership necessary to change the name to more accurately express the broad range of services provided to the community. As a public hospital district, Jefferson Healthcare is owned by the taxpayers of East Jefferson County and is operated as a municipal corporation by five elected commissioners who oversee the district’s operations. Jefferson Healthcare offers a comprehensive array of health services including inpatient hospital care, outpatient services, primary care clinics, emergency care and home health/hospice services.

Forks Community Hospital Forks Community Hospital wants people to know they are “Pioneers in Rural Health Care” not because it’s a catchy phrase; it’s true! There has been a hospital in Forks since 1949 and the Clallam County Hospital District No. 1 was the very first public hospital district formed in the state. Located on Bogachiel Way, a few blocks west of Forks Avenue and U.S. Highway 101, the campus is home to the hospital, the Long Term Care facility, a busy medical office and clinic, and unusual for a small rural hospital, a robust community mental health and chemical dependency program called West End Outreach Services. It’s one of Forks’ largest employers with just over 200 workers and a medical staff that encompasses 10 primary care providers, two general surgeons and a network of visiting physician specialists that include Kitsap Cardiology (now Harrison Health Cardiology), orthopedics, ear, nose and throat, gynecology, podiatry and urology. There also is a clinic in Clallam Bay for the convenience of coastal residents. Hometown health care in Forks is very much up with the times; Dr. Tristan McGovern, orthopedic surgeon, directs a total joint replacement program that allows recipients to stay in their home community for knee or hip 58

In the next three years Forks will be rolling out an accreditation program to achieve ISO 9001 certification for the hospital and all its programs.
replacement surgery and all the physical therapy and rehabilitation needed to get back in the game. The pain management program provides medical and minimally invasive relief for chronic pain; it’s directed by Julie Erickson, CRNA (nurse anesthetist). Dr. Will Washington provides sophisticated bio-identical hormonal treatment allowing men and women to regain vitality, increase life span and trim off excess pounds. The medical records are electronic, the X-ray systems are digital and the treatment protocols are identical to those used in major urban medical centers such as Harborview and Swedish hospitals in Seattle. Despite the
high-tech, Forks Community Hospital is still high-touch; patients know the staff, staff care for their neighbors, and it’s not uncommon to see generations of families gathering to support their loved ones or welcome a new baby to the world. Under direction of Chief Executive Officer Bill McMillan and his leadership team, the organization will continue to transform to best-in-class performance. Over the next three years Forks is rolling out an accreditation program that will see the hospital and all its programs achieve ISO 9001 certification, a major culture change around quality of care and patient satisfaction. The transformation also will be
physical; 2014 will see a $1 million main entrance and Emergency Department renovation with the majority of Bill McMillan funding being provided by the CEO U.S. Department of Commerce through a Community Block Development Grant. The organization is governed by a three-person Board of Commissioners who are publicly elected; Daisy Anderson is the chairman, Gerry Lane is secretary/treasurer and Don Lawley is the newest commissioner.
