Island Crossroads – Vashon’s Health Care Dilemma

November 5th, 2018 by Eric Pryne


Neighborcare Health, which has operated the island’s only primary care clinic for the past two years, says it’s running a big budget deficit–just like the organizations that ran the clinic before it did. That news has helped prompt an island group to explore ways to make health care on Vashon financially sustainable. Why doesn’t medical care on the island pencil out? What, if anything, can be done about it? Host Eric Pryne interviews Neighborcare CEO Michael Erikson and John Jenkel and Tim Johnson of the Vashon Maury Health Collaborative.
