Harrison Issues June edition of Message from the CEO - 6/4/2014

Video program highlights Harrison's Vision 2020 plan

BREMERTON— In recent years, Harrison Medical Center has transitioned from a community hospital to a regional medical facility, serving four counties throughout the Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas. Beginning with Vision 2010 and revisited again, with Vision 2015, Harrison’s strategic planning efforts resulted in such improvements as the expansion of cardiovascular and oncology services in Bremerton in 2010, and the opening of The Orthopaedic Center at Harrison Silverdale in September 2013. Another outcome of that process will be the opening of Harrison Bainbridge in late fall 2014, providing essential, first-ever 24/7 urgent care, as well as primary care and a multi-specialty center for island residents.

Harrison’s June edition of Message from the CEO features Harrison President and Chief Executive Officer, Scott Bosch, who explains Vision 2020, the continuation of Harrison’s strategic planning process, which focuses on acute care and ambulatory facilities in light of the changing healthcare needs of Kitsap and Olympic Peninsula residents. Currently, Harrison operates two hospital campuses, in Bremerton and Silverdale, about eight miles apart.

This month’s edition offers a platform to help address questions regarding the Board of Directors’ exploration regarding a single acute care in-patient hospital in Silverdale and how to best serve the Bremerton community through new or additional outpatient services.
