Islander Steve Rubicz weighs in on Sea Mar Community Health Centers

Healthcare

Sea Mar has not shown collaborative effort

As a property owner and taxpayer, I voted for our Health Care District so we could have access to health care on the island because of our isolation, especially in urgent situations.

So I find it disturbing that Sea Mar has found it necessary to duplicate the effort of our Health Care District by purchasing another property, instead of collaborating with our District.

To begin with, Sea Mar was ready to leave us with no clinic, but now they have us dealing with two properties instead of showing us a collaborative effort.

I see nothing to recommend them for our community.

Can our District find a better partner?
