HOSPITAL: JEFFERSON HEALTHCARE 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 No. 2. The hospital was renamed Jefferson General Hospital. In 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. Hospital Commission meetings are scheduled for the first and third Wednesdays of every month at 3:30 p.m. in the Jefferson Healthcare conference room (suite 302) 2500 W. Sims Way, third floor.

CLALLAM COUNTY CLALLAM COUNTY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION Founded in 1985, the Clallam County Economic Development Corporation (“the EDC”), a nonprofit corporation, is here to serve the needs of the businesses and the citizens of the county in all phases of economic growth and development. It is currently led by a team of three individuals: Bill Greenwood, Jennifer Linde and Amy McDonald. That team reports to a board of directors consisting of superb individuals from the corporate world and from the public sector. The EDC enjoys wide and growing support from members of the business community and most public entities in the county, as well as from the state Department of Commerce. Collectively, the members make up the Clallam County Economic Development Council. The EDC serves the county in two primary ways: First, the team aims to help any county company to succeed and flourish. At its disposal are a host of resources from the potential provision of low-cost loans to securing extraordinary tax incentives and tax credits available to our rural county. The EDC also provides two SCORE counselors who are experienced and dedicated to helping entrepreneurs to form and then

grow a successful business. A long list of these and other tools for business assistance can be found on the EDC website. Second, the EDC always has been about job creation. The team is actively recruiting businesses large and small to the good life on the North Olympic Peninsula. Many high quality companies are now in the process of evaluating the benefits of a move to Clallam County of all or parts of their business. The various incentives available make moving here highly profitable. And our costs of living are considerably less than those of, say, King County, only two hours away. All these companies combined would relocate hundreds of families to the county while seeking to employ hundreds more. And those newly employed would become important new customers of our merchants and service providers. The EDC serves the entire county from Neah Bay to Blyn. Its website — www.clallam.org ­— has a long list of ancillary services such as demographic data, job training resources and much more.

Jamestown S’Klallam tribe The Jamestown S’Klallam tribe is one of 566 sovereign tribal nations in this country engaged in a government-to-government relationship with the federal and state governments. This relationship ensures that the promises made and the rights retained in the Treaty of Point No Point (signed in 1855 by ancestors of the present-day citizens of the tribe), including cultural and natural resources, education and health care, are maintained. The tribal government includes committees comprised of tribal citizens who make recommendations to the tribal council and employs close to 200 people who manage the tribe’s resources, protect its sovereignty and provide programs and services for the tribe’s 574 citizens. In addition to the staff members who work in the tribal offices in Blyn, Jamestown Family Health Clinic and Jamestown Dental Clinic (both of which are open to the general public), Northwest Native Expressions Gallery and Gift Shop and the Dungeness River Audubon Center at Railroad Bridge Park, the tribe employs approximately 500 additional staff at its businesses enterprises, including 7 Cedars Casino, The Cedars at Dungeness golf course, Longhouse Market and Deli and Chevron Fueling Station, Jamestown Excavating, Jamestown Networks, Carlsborg Self-Storage and Jamestown Fireworks.

For the past 30-plus years since attaining official recognition on Feb. 10, 1981, the Jamestown S’Klallam tribe has utilized its status as a federally acknowledged sovereign nation to continue its work as a progressive, forward-thinking people, intent on self-sufficiency through economic development, education and community partnerships. Projects focus on protection and restoration of natural resources and habitat (in the Dungeness River Watershed and beyond), improving health and wellness (partnered with Olympic Medical Center), ensuring community protection (partnered with the district and the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office) and promoting education (working with Native students of all ages in public elementary, middle and secondary level, and partnered with Peninsula College Longhouse) and job readiness.

A leader in rural health care Forks Community Hospital staff want people to know they are “Pioneers in Rural Health Care” not because it’s a catchy phrase; but because 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 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 primary care providers and a network of visiting physician special-


WHO’S WHO 2015

ists that include Kitsap Cardiology (now Harrison Health Cardiology), general surgery, 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 replacement surgery and all the physical therapy and rehabilitation needed to get back in the game. 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 David Selman or welcome a new baby chief executive officer to the world. The organization is governed by a threeperson Board of Commissioners who are publicly elected; Daisy Anderson is the chairman, Don Lawley is secretary and Gerry Lane is commissioner. David Selman is the the chief executive officer. For details, call 360-374-6271, ext. 169.
