News & Notices – Vashon Health Care District


Sea Mar Community Health Centers has informed the Vashon Health Care District that all Kaiser Permanente insurance plans now are accepted at Sea Mar’s clinic at Sunrise Ridge. “This is great news for the island,” said Tom Langland, president of the Health Care District’s board of commissioners. “When we were negotiating with Sea Mar this fall to have them assume operation of the clinic, we emphasized the importance of their contracting with all major third-party payers, including Kaiser.”

Kaiser has more than 2,000 members on Vashon. Sea Mar accepted most Kaiser plans from the day it began operating the island clinic in early November. The contract for the final plan that had previously not been accepted was finalized the week of Dec. 14. “One of the district’s goals is ensure accessible primary care for all islanders,” Langland said. “This is an important step in that direction.”

I have been a resident of  Vashon island since 2009.  My previous background was in frozen foods operations and brand management, but on Vashon I found a new calling in the nonprofit and public service sector. 

I have chaired the Vashon Maury Island Community Council, served on the board of Vashon Be Prepared, been a member of the Vashon Maury Health Collaborative, and served on the executive committee for the campaign to create this very Health District. 

Professionally, I have had the immense honor and pleasure of being the business manager for Granny’s Attic for the past eleven years. 

I’m a people person, and if we haven’t met, we should fix that immediately!
