Coulee Medical Center ER and Walk-In Care

District contracts for nursing at school


The Grand Coulee Dam School District is contracting with Coulee Medical Center to provide supervisory nursing services for the new school complex in Coulee Dam.

The school board approved a measure that will provide two days of on-site registered nurse care at the schools, and also provide consultation when needed.

The school also has two practical nurses who provide care, one at each school, five days a week.

The agreement calls for CMC to bill the school district for up to 640 hours of supervisory nursing coverage at $30 an hour during the course of the school year.

The new arrangement replaces registered nurse Cheryl Fercha, who resigned her longstanding position at the school district.
