vote on LET'S GIVE ~OHEONE EJLJE A Cll4NCE Follow the "H" to Catalina Island Medical Center New signs will assist new residents and visitors BY JUDY HIBBS Catalina Island Medical Center will be a lot easier to find with the installation of four new blue ~'H" hospital directional signs around Avalon. At the urging of AMDC Board member Bea Van Every, CIMC's CEO John Friel began his inqui- ries by writing to the City and later meeting with City Manager Ben Harvey. Many new residents, visitors and guests are unaware that Avalon even has a hospital. The purpose of placing the inter- nationally recognized bright blue placards around town is a matter of public safety and community awareness. With the recommendation of City Planning Commissioner Amanda Cook and the approval of Ben Harvey the signs were ordered, received and installed by Pastor Lopez and his public works crew. The signs are-24" x 24" with arrows pointing in the direction to take toward the hospital. They are located at the intersection of Crescent and Clarissa near CC Gallagher's, at Five Points nearest to City Hall, on Beacon Street at the downhill Sumner Avenue stop sign and on the golf course side of Avalon Canyon Road at Falls Canyon Road. CIMC is committed to safe- guarding the community and it's visitors. Disaster preparedness and emergency services are vital for Avalon and CIMC CARES. Follow the signs to find qual- ity medical services at Catalina Island Medical Center. Paid for b / supporters of Joe Sam ~son for Cil~' Council Avalon's future is in your hands.
