The controversial move by CHI Franciscan to close Bremerton’s hospital and move to Silverdale continues to draw angry citizens out worrying about the poor’s ability to have hospital and emergency room service locally.

BREMERTON — Residents of Bremerton and nearby communities made their voices heard loud and clear: do not close the community’s hospital.

Approximately 200 people, some of whom had to wait outside due to overcrowding, were on hand in the Bremerton School District Office board room on Sept. 8 to voice their opposition to the closure of Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton as part of a proposal to move medical care to an expanded Silverdale campus. The hearing was conducted by the state Department of Health as part of its reconsideration process.
