COVID-19 has pulled us together like no other time in our history.
Because of your generosity our TOGETHER WE CARE campaign raised the much needed funds to help us keep COVID-19 at bay.
However, there was no way to predict the overall financial impact, which has been tremendous.
Prepared for what’s ahead.
While COVID cases have decreased, we’re not out of the woods. Healthcare experts fear a potential 4th wave, as case numbers begin to climb.
As vaccines became available, WhidbeyHealth lead the way in distributing them to our frontline workers, our elderly and the most vulnerable among us while local pharmacies prepared to join the effort.
There was no surplus money to run vaccine clinics. There was no budget for deep-freeze storage systems. There was no excess money for additional staffing or facility renovations.
The combination of unanticipated expenses and reduced insurance revenue currently represent $15 million in losses.
Still, WhidbeyHealth was the leading provider of vaccines with more than 14,000 vaccinations administered to date– all of them at no charge to any patient. Like all of the services at WhidbeyHealth, everyone who needs medical care gets it regardless of their ability to pay.
