Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe

The Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribal Singers performed a few opening songs blessing the new medical center last week. Tribal Chairman Jeromy Sullivan welcomed everyone to the event. Gov. Jay Inslee was given a tour of the facility. The aim of the health center is to provide comprehensive health care services to the S’Klallam and other tribal communities in Kitsap County, with a goal of having as many services under one roof. The two-story 22,500-square-foot facility will provide medical, dental and mental health services in addition to wrap-around services such as nursing care, health advocacy, addiction treatment and much more. “You have created the new way of providing healthcare, by integrating physical with mental health…You don’t divide the mind the soul, and the body. They’re all one thing. This is really the new way to provide healthcare in the state of Washington,” Inslee said. Ken Park/North Kitsap Herald
