NAS Whidbey IslandMilitary Trusted Businesses
National Hospital Week follows National Nurses Week, and we recognize the extraordinary performance of our entire team.
THANKS to the entire WhidbeyHealth team!
Because of their dedication, courage and commitment:
- WhidbeyHealth was among the first to provide drive-through testing for coronavirus.
- Facilities have had rapid, major upgrades.
- Procurement teams have worked non-stop to secure precious PPE and supplies to keep operations running.
- Telehealth calls are about half of all clinic visits.
- At the same time, we maintain capacity to care for everyone.
Our lives have been put on pause, but our healthcare needs have not.
Do not delay needed care and risk your condition becoming worse. Our Medical Center and clinic locations are safe, our providers are ready and our facilities have capacity.
Our team is here for the community, and our community has been here for our team.
Together, we are fighting for the lives of everyone on Whidbey Island.
We believe everyone on Whidbey Island deserves local access to high-quality healthcare.
WhidbeyHealth provides progressive, patient-centric healthcare, a safety net when emergencies happen, and peace of mind knowing our team is standing by 24/7 to respond to your needs. WhidbeyHealth Medical Center and clinics serve everyone on the island, including NAS Whidbey families.
Our dedicated team of caring, compassionate, and competent healthcare professionals is continually finding new ways to meet the evolving needs of our diverse community.
We’re meeting the threat head-on.
Planning our response to the virus was initiated in January with the activation of our Incident Command system. Our first action was to form a COVID-19 partnership with key organizations, including the medical staff at NAS Whidbey.
Here is what you need to know:
- Taking care of your family starts with taking care of yourself. Following guidance about hand-washing, social distancing and avoiding infection prevents transmitting Coronavirus to others.
- The majority of people infected with Coronavirus do not get seriously ill.
- Adopting tele-medicine visits allows us to help more of our neighbors at a much lower risk for patients and our staff. Tele-visits are easy to set up on your smartphone and help you ‘stay home/stay healthy.’ If you feel ill, you can always call our Oak Harbor Cabot Drive clinic to arrange an appointment: 360-675-6648.
- Not everyone needs to be tested, but if you or a family member develop a fever of 100* or higher, unexplained cough that is getting worse, body aches and weakness, call our Coronavirus Nurse Hotline at 360-240-4055. Drive-through testing is available for patients who preregister with the Hotline.
Drive-through Coronavirus testing
Drive-through Coronavirus testing is available for patients with symptoms who are 5 years and older. Staying in your car helps expedite the testing process and reduces your risk of exposure to the virus. To register for a drive-through test, talk with a nurse at our Coronavirus Hotline: 360-240-4055.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have centralized services to make them more accessible for you.
