Vote ‘yes’ on EvergreenHealth measure | Letter

This spring, voters on the Eastside will have the opportunity to approve a bond measure to provide critical funding to EvergreenHealth.

As our community hospital, EvergreenHealth needs our support to ensure that families here continue to have access to the safest, highest-quality care and service now and in the future.

When our first child was born, my wife and I were like any new parents — excited, but overwhelmed and unsure of what to expect. As soon as we arrived at EvergreenHealth’s Family Maternity Center, the team calmed our fears and ensured our experience was not only safe, but also incredibly special for our family.

When we had our second baby, though we’d moved further away, we couldn’t see ourselves going anywhere else — we were happy to make the commute because we knew the experience would be exceptional. Now just last month, we welcomed our third child at EvergreenHealth, and once again, have the doctors and nurses to thank for a truly amazing experience.

That’s why it’s so important that we rally around this special resource, to ensure that more families like ours can experience the exceptional care and service EvergreenHealth provides to new families, in an environment that can continue to grow and evolve with new advancements and technology.

It is my understanding that this bond measure will enable EvergreenHealth to upgrade the Family Maternity Center in several ways so that it can remain at the forefront of exceptional care and service, while also keeping pace with the latest and most advanced health care technologies.

As the rate of innovation in health care accelerates, our community deserves to have continued access to a resource that offers the best in care, service and safety so that more families have the opportunity to welcome their babies in the same safe and comforting environment that we’ve been lucky to have.
