GH Health & Wellness

This can involve doctors, coaches, therapists, and other specialty caregivers.  Diet Changes, supplements, and exercise programs also make a big difference. 

Being well is well worth the effort.  Here are some local options to get you started.

Health Facilities in GH

Grays Harbor is home to two hospitals.  Both are publically owned, with elected boards that govern the facilities. Both are medical facililties but they are very different after that. Different services, different business models, and even different outlooks.  Check their websites, ask for referals for your particular needs in any health matters.   

HOSPITAL BOARDS ARE ELECTED BY THE PUBLIC.  YOU ARE THE PUBLIC!

Finding a Physician in General

There are many physicians in the area, unfortunately your choices may be limited by your Health Insurance, or finding a practioner that is taking new patients. The list is long, often complicated by Insurance, Hospital affiliations, it's also ever changing, for that reason at this time, there will not be a published directory on this site.  Here are some tips from HealthCare.gov

  1. Get a list of in-network providers: Call your insurance company or look at their plan materials for a list of doctors in their network. You’ll usually pay less to see a doctor in your network than a doctor who’s out-of-network.

  2. Do your research: Ask friends and family if they recommend their doctors. You may even be able to read online reviews for doctors in your area.

  3. Call the office for more information: Call the doctor’s office and ask them any questions you have to help you decide. Make sure they accept new patients and your health coverage.

  4. Make an appointment, and give them a try: When you call to make your appointment, have your insurance card on hand. It might take more than one visit to figure out if a doctor is the right one for you.
