May 16 Election is Critical to the Future of Health and Senior Care in our Community

On May 16 voters in north Tillamook County face an important choice: whether to enter a new era of health and senior care by modernizing local health care facilities and expanding services to seniors, families and children.

The Nehalem Bay Health District’s bond measure on the May 16 ballot presents a once-in-a generation opportunity to create more local health and senior care options right here at home.

A YES vote will allow construction of a new, state-of-the-art Nehalem Bay Health Center and Pharmacy. A new, expanded facility will replace the old and too small Rinehart Clinic, be able to serve more patients, feature a modern pharmacy and space to accommodate specialty health care services, including a dental suite.

A YES vote will renovate and modernize the Nehalem Valley Care Center, the only skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility on the Oregon coast between Astoria and Newport, and a facility critical to serving a growing senior population on the north coast.

A YES vote will allow site preparation leading to workforce housing for health care and essential workers in our community.

The question the community faces is not about preserving the status quo, but whether we move to a new era of better, more accessible health and senior care.

The bond measure is an investment – in the future, in the community, in better services right here at home.

With strong community support – and your YES vote – we can realize this vision and we will chart a better future.

If not now – when?

Please vote YES for better local health and senior care.
