The Point Roberts Hospital District is asking for community input to help make sure the local clinic is meeting the needs of residents and visitors.

“We felt it was time to check in with the community,” said hospital district commissioner Robin Nault. “Numbers were down a very little bit and we wanted to look at why. A lot of people have been giving very good feedback.”

The short survey at asks one central question: “If you don’t currently or regularly use the clinic, what prevents you from doing so?” The six other questions establish patterns of clinic use and asks respondents to describe their clinic experience. If desired, respondents may also leave their contact information for a call back from district superintendent Elaine Komusi. The survey will remain open until
Saturday, December 30.

“This is your community clinic,” Nault said. “Let’s hear from you.”
