Peace Harbor to Celebrate 30th

This summer PeaceHealth, Peace Harbor Hospital will celebrate 30 years.  The hospital opened its doors in 1989 and has progressed throughout the years adding services and is currently working on several projects including upgrades to the facility and seismic modifications.  The hospital is also being certified as a level 3 trauma center according to Chief Administrator Jason Hawkins which means that critical care can be handled locally.

“So when people are having a motor vehicle accident, there is an accident on the dunes that our staff, our nurses and lab folks, radiology folks, repertory therapists are all highly trained and able to take care of these patients.”

Hawkins says the upgrades planned will not affect services at the hospital.  He says they are currently in the planning phase and construction will not happen until sometime in 2020.  Plans to celebrate the 30th anniversary though are upcoming.

“July 12th from 2-5 near the cafeteria at the Peace Harbor Café is open to the public, some ice cream some snacks, a chance to celebrate 30 years walking together.”
