Medical center expands servicesSeeking additional physician
PeaceHealth Peace Island Medical Center will extend clinic hours beginning in May.
Doctor Carrie Sun will join the PIMC team of caregivers, working Wednesdays through Saturdays and enabling PIMC to expand its clinic hours as activity at the medical center is expected significantly over the summer months.
PeaceHealth is also recruiting an additional physician in order to continue the expanded coverage after Dr. Sun leaves.
According to Cynthia Cazacopol, director of clinical services, Dr. Sun’s arrival will allow Peace Island Medical Center to open a Saturday clinic and extend its clinic hours.
“On May 11, we will offer appointments on Saturday between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.,” Cazacopol said. “And the clinic’s weekday hours are expanding – as of Monday, June 3 – to cover 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.”
Appointments can be scheduled by phoning 378-2141.
PIMC Medical Director Doctor Michael Wingren said having an additional physician on staff will also provide expanded health care access to islanders.
“Increasing the hours that we are open is a big step on the journey to ensuring Islanders have access to the care they need – here at home," Wingren said.
