COLUMBIA COUNTY PUBLIC HOSPITAL DISTRICT NO. 1
Notice is hereby given that a special meeting of the Board of Directors of Columbia County Public Hospital District No. 1. will be held on Wednesday January 14, 2015 at 8:00 a.m. at Best Western 507 E Main St, Dayton WA. The purpose of the meeting: Discussion of the 2015 $5.5 Million Bond to renovate Columbia County Health System. Prioritize and re-evaluate 2014-2015 goals.
25.1% of Columbia County residents smoke as opposed to a State average of 18%, and as a result we have more residents suffering from asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD ). These chronic illnesses are either directly linked to, or made worse by, tobacco use. Additionally, the financial burden of of tobacco use cannot be ignored with smokers spending between $1,590.00 and $3,276.00 annually on tobacco products alone. This doesn’t take into account associated healthcare costs which can be an additional $3,200.00 a year. If you would like to speak to one of our providers on ways to quit smoking, please call our Clinic in Waitsburg at 509.337.6311 or in Dayton at 509.382.2531. Be sure to take advantage of our new Saturday hours! We are now available 10:00 – 2:00 on Saturdays.
