A look at Harrison’s proposed Bainbridge center


Harrison Medical Center is seeking approval of a 25,000-square-foot building to be constructed near the intersection of Highway 305 and Madison Avenue.

blog.harrisonmapThe hospital hopes to break ground on an initial 17,000-square-foot phase this fall and open the center by the winter of 2014.

Today Harrison sent us artist’s renderings of how the initial phase might look on the site. The rendering below shows a view of the proposed building from southbound Highway 305.

A public participation meeting for the project is scheduled for 4-6 p.m. Thursday at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art auditorium. (See the notice PDF here.)

The proposed center would offer 24-hour urgent care, primary and specialty care, and lab and imaging services.

Bainbridge advertises for public works director

Bainbridge Island’s public works director vacancy is now being advertised nationally.

The listing is posted on the website of search firm Strategic Government Resources. SGR is giving the public works position the same treatment it gave the city’s manager and police chief openings. Consultants hosted a forum to gather community input and developed this glossy profile:

Requirements for the public works position include at least eight years of experience in public works, a bachelor’s degree in engineering (master’s preferred), and a professional engineer’s license. The salary will vary depending on the applicant’s qualifications. Former Public Works Director Lance Newkirk earned $131,000 a year.

Newkirk announced his resignation in April, but only recently left the city’s payroll. The city hired John Cunningham as an interim public works director at a rate of $100 an hour.

The deadline for applications is Sept. 3.
