Grays Harbor Public Hospital district remains as proposed

The Grays Harbor County Commissioners approved the Grays Harbor Public Hospital District boundaries to remain as proposed, including the majority of Grays Harbor.

A motion by Commissioner on Wednesday night would have included only Aberdeen, Hoquiam, and Cosmopolis in the taxable district, with room for expansion of both Grays Harbor and Summit Pacific Medical Center in the future. That motion was voted down 2-1.

The Commissioners announced that if the GHPD is approved by voters on the August ballot, the district would have 5 internal districts, with a 7 member board, voted on by residents. This would include 1 representative from each district, with 2 others at-large.

The Grays Harbor County ’s office will be preparing a final definition of the area and hospital commissioner positions. As elected officials, anyone wishing to sit on that board would need to file for the office next week in order to be on the August ballot along with the public hospital.
