OMC Auxiliary Donates Nearly $25,000 to Hospital for Equipment

July 5, 2018 -
Scholarships Recipients Also Announced
 
PORT ANGELES – The OMC Auxiliary presented five Olympic Medical Center departments with needed medical equipment as part of its annual "Wish List” ceremony on June 20 at Olympic Memorial Hospital. 

Presented to department directors by Auxiliary President Leif Olson, items included a Draeger jaundice meter for the OMP Peninsula Children’s Clinic, a Welch Allyn vital signs monitor for Olympic Medical Cancer Center, an Olympus blanket warmer for the Diagnostic Imaging department, gliders for the obstetrics unit and Lifeline subscriptions for Olympic Medical Home Health. More than $600,000 has been raised by Auxiliary members and donated to the hospital for equipment since 1980.

The Auxiliary also announced four $1,500 scholarships to medical students: 
Emily Boyd and Claire Henninger plan to study kinesiology
Aliyah Johnston is pursing pre-med
Michael Lee will graduate in 2020 with a doctorate degree in pharmacy. 

All four students will attend Western Washington University.

"The scholarship process is very competitive and it was challenging to narrow down the selections,” said Patty Glennon, chair of scholarship committee. The Auxiliary has awarded a total of $40,000 in scholarships since 2009.

The OMC Auxiliary raises funds for equipment and scholarships through the Auxiliary-run hospital gift shop, seasonal sales events and other fundraisers throughout the year.

"Olympic Medical Center volunteers make a significant impact by giving their time and expertise to work with patients, visitors and staff throughout Olympic Medical,” said Kathy Coombes, volunteer coordinator.
