The Point Roberts Hospital District would like to thank the clinic staff and the community for their continued support of the Point Roberts Clinic. We are proud to have so many residents choosing the clinic and family Nurse Practitioner, Natalié Davidson, as their primary care provider.
In August, a dozen members of Unity Care’s Bellingham facility drove to the Point to participate in the fire department’s open house. Not only did these wonderful professionals come all the way from Bellingham, but they also provided 10 of our patients with a free dental exam in their mobile dental van. This giant van came complete with enough space for two dental chairs and an X-ray machine. Ten diabetic patients were also given free retinal eye exams. Both the clinic staff and fire department volunteers continue to work together collaboratively in addressing the needs of the community.
In August, we said goodbye to financial administrator SuzAnne Kinsey who retired after 10 years of fabulous support to the district. We welcome Jackie Gibilterra and look forward to working with Jackie, who will continue to provide excellent financial knowledge to the district. We wish SuzAnne all the best in her new home in Canada and thank her for the many years of service to the hospital district.
Both the hospital district and the clinic continue to work for the community of Point Roberts who have been so supportive of our services. Happy New Year to all!
