• PeaceHealth needs your help!

    September 17, 2021
    SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. — PeaceHealth hospitals, clinics, doctors and nurses in Northwest Washington need the community’s help to make sure they can continue to safely provide care – not only to those suffering from severe illness from COVID-19 but to those requiring care for the full range of illness and injuries that its doctors and nurses typically treat.
     
    “We can’t do this alone,” said Sudhakar Karlapudi, MD, chief medical officer and patient safety officer for PeaceHealth Northwest. “We are dependent on our community members to do what is right, which is to help protect each other from getting the virus and by doing that, help the hospital and clinics care for people in need of our services.”
     
    Karlapudi noted that while one of the approved COVID-19 vaccines is the BEST way to avoid serious illness and hospitalization, simple precautions can go a long way to keep you and your family healthy:

     
    • Avoid any event or gathering that may attract a large number of people and where you cannot maintain a safe distance.
     
    • For any social gathering – keeping it small and outdoors is always the safer choice.
     
    • Wearing a mask over your mouth and nose whenever you are in a group of people helps to protect others and yourself.
     
    • Wash or sanitize your hands regularly – avoid touching your face, eyes or mouth
     
    “Let’s work together to end the pandemic and keep everyone safe,” Karlapudi said.
