4 comments on “The Need for our Local Hospital

    • Ruth, my name is Kathy Davis and I am president of the EPHC auxiliary. Of course you can join the auxiliary and volunteer, but you can contribute to the hospital monetarily, too. Contact Tiffany Williams at 832-6564 or e-mail her at twilliams@ephc.org. Another important way to support our local hospital is to use its services – doctors, clinics, lab, radiology – instead of traveling out of town for medical care. If you have any questions please call me at 836-1884. So glad you care!

  1. This is such a true statement. Fortunately, so far, I have not needed to call 911 and have the fire department dispatched for fire or medical needs. It’s really comforting to know that you are available just minutes away with highly trained paramedics to start treatment on the patient within 15 minutes of that “golden hour”. It’s so important!!. It’s also reassuring to know that the ambulance & hospital are only 15 mins away for transport. It would be a medical/economic disaster for Portola and the surrounding communities if the hospital closed. We all need to support it!
