Cartwright for Hospital Commissioner

Dr. Jeff Cartwright has my vote for Hospital Commissioner Pos. No. 3 on the Cascade Valley Hospital Board.

I have lived in Arlington since 1975. Always active in our community, I’ve served on the Cascade Valley Hospital Advisory Board, Arlington School Board, and as Fire Commissioner for the Arlington Heights Fire Department.

I know Dr. Cartwright as a patient, as a fellow community member, and a Rotarian.

As a patient, I can speak to the incredible care that Dr. Cartwright gives his patients. He had developed his own successful private practice. As community members and fellow Rotarians, Dr. Cartwright and his wife, Judi have been a wonderful addition to Arlington.

I’ve had three surgeries at Cascade Valley Hospital. On my last hospital stay, a medication needed to be changed in the middle of the night. I was told by the attending nurse that I was lucky to be a patient of Dr. Cartwright’s, as he was one of the very few doctors that you could call at that time of night. This community will be well-served by a man so dedicated and attentive on the CVH Board.

If you wish to keep the status quo at CVH, vote for his opponent. A vote for Dr. Jeff Cartwright is a vote to have a professional, medical perspective on the Board making decisions and asking intelligent, informed questions to steer the future of our public hospital in a positive direction.
