UW Medicine and Catherine Washburn Medical Association Announce Plans to Pursue Partnership for Lopez Clinic
February 2, 2017
UW Medicine and Catherine Washburn Medical Association (CWMA) have agreed to pursue a partnership to assure continued access to primary care at the Lopez Medical Clinic.
In a January 27, 2017 letter to CWMA board president Marty Clark, Dr. Brian Goldstein, UW Medicine Chief Health System Officer, stated his organization’s interest “given the strong level of dedication and enthusiasm shown by your board members and the community.” Together, UW Medicine and CWMA will explore all options to provide for an affiliation with UW Medicine on Lopez Island. Because the Lopez Medical Clinic is currently operated through an agreement with Island Hospital, Goldstein said there are plans to include Island Hospital in the discussions to ensure a smooth transition.
“We are very pleased with this news and look forward to continuing the exploration,” said Dr. Bob Wilson, Lopez Clinic Medical Director. “We know UW Medicine will be an outstanding partner for us. With their support, we will be able to build on the terrific care our clinic offers and have access to some of the finest medical support in the Pacific Northwest.” Clark emphasized that continuing a relationship with Island Hospital is desirable. “We have received many comments that our patients appreciate the excellent inpatient and outpatient support that Island Hospital provides our community and we look forward to continuing that relationship.”

This website offers information about both the Lopez clinic and the Catherine Washburn Medical Association (CWMA), the non-profit organization which built Lopez clinic and is solely responsible for its on-going funding. On the left, Lopez clinic; on the right, the CWMA.
Our clinic couldn't exist without the financial support of this community. The Lopez Island Medical Clinic was not only built, equipped, and maintained entirely with islanders' donations, today it is that same friends-and-neighbors' funding that keeps our clinic open and thriving. The CWMA is the group of local volunteers who organize and manage those fundraising efforts.
