OMC Caregivers Advocate in Olympia

April 25, 2018 -
PORT ANGELES - Olympic Medical Center CEO Eric Lewis honored four employees at the board of commissioners meeting in April for their recent advocacy work in Olympia. Laurie Elmer a registered nurse in obstetrics, Jeana Hutton a registered nurse in the intensive care unit, Patty Wood, medical lab technologist and specialist, and Nancy Dahll, ultrasound technologist, each received a recognition award.

According to Jennifer Burkhardt, chief human resources officer and general counsel, "these employees recently joined our legislative advocacy efforts by traveling to Olympia with OMC leadership to help tell our story.”

Elmer, Hutton, Wood and Dahll spent a full day in meetings and shared their perspective with officials, stressing the importance of OMC as a community safety net hospital and how it is critical to have adequate reimbursement for services provided to patients. 

They also shared how vital it is to them personally as front line staff, that our community expands the capacity to develop a workforce in order to meet the growing demands for registered nurses, medical assistants and certified nursing assistants.
