What is the Vashon Maury Health Collaborative?

The Vashon Maury Health Collaborative (VMHC) was founded to facilitate community collaboration among Islanders about health care issues. It was incorporated in 2013. VMHC is not a medical provider, but a solution seeker. That’s why we have launched this health care campaign.

Is VMHC part of Neighborcare Health?

No. However, we have been closely coordinating with Neighborcare Health. As everyone knows, Neighborcare operates the Island health center and VMHC led the effort to raise the money needed to re-open the health clinic three years ago after Franciscan closed it. We talk regularly with Neighborcare about quality of care and about the challenges of making ends meet.
