Heel! Don't heal!
At their October 2022 meeting, the Hospital District voted to deny Supertrack's request to change the contract period from one year to two. Supertrack made this request so they could offer prospective employees at the clinic more stability with longer term contracts. In a time of staff shortages, this would significantly improve Supertrack's ability to hire the best available people and provide their best services in Point Roberts. Unfortunately, the board voted to deny this request in the name of preserving "flexibility" on both sides, even though the district has no better options for operating the clinic. In a world where reasonable people typically seek win-win solutions, the district has deliberately chosen the lose-lose option.
