Guests streamed through the hospital’s new addition, with proud administrators and staff serving as tour guides. Here, Director of Human Resources and Strategic Planning Michael Bruggeman demonstrates a patient lift. See for more information about the renovation and expansion project.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
