We envision a strong, reliable, publicly accountable health care system for rural Washington that ensures those who need care receive the right care at the right time in the right place.
The system will provide personal and population health services responsive to the unique needs of each community. The system will provide a medical home for all people in the local community and will provide planned access to the full continum of care - including physical, oral, and mental health services - through regional systems that formally link primary and specialty services.
The system will produce high quality outcomes, promote healthy communities, and merit the confidence of the community. The leadership to create and support a better rural health care system will come from communities and providers working together.
