A    Brief    History    of    Medical Care on Cortes Island From   about   1905,   Health   care   on Cortes    and    other    isolated    islands was     provided     by     the     Columbia Coast     Mission     of     the     Anglican Church.      The   Mission   operated   on many         isolated         communities, logging    camps    and    First    Nations villages   using   a   variety   of   vessels including        the        35        ft        M.V. Rendezvous    in    the    40’s    and    the M.V.     Columbia     III,     launched     in 1956.
