Olympic Medical Center Given Operating Room of the Year Award

August 22, 2018 -
PORT ANGELES  – Olympic Medical Center Chief Executive Officer Eric Lewis and Chief Nursing Officer/ Hospital Chief Operating Officer Lorraine Wall, RN, accepted an Operating Room of the Year award from Heidi Schaiberger, donor relations account manager at LifeNet Health at an August 15 board of commissioners’ meeting.

The LifeNet Health "OR of the Year Award” is given to hospitals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in accommodating LifeNet Health recovery teams. LifeNet Health is a non-profit global leader in regenerative medicine and the world's largest provider of allograft bio-implants and organs for transplantation. 

In 2017, Olympic Medical Center had 11 tissue donors. LifeNet Health performed seven of those recoveries utilizing Olympic Medical Center’s operating rooms. Due to the logistics required to organize a donation, from the time spent with the family, to the time coordinating a recovery, the availability of OMC’s facilities made donation possible in many circumstances.

"One donor has the potential to save or enhance the lives of 150 people. With access to Olympic Medical Center’s facility to further support the tissue donation process, the seven recoveries performed at Olympic Medical Center in 2017 alone will help support an estimated 1,000 patients in need through tissue transplantation,” says Heidi Schaiberger, donor relations account manager at LifeNet Health.

"Our recovery teams always return from Olympic Medical Center expressing great appreciation for the warmth and support they feel when they interact with the staff there,” says Schaiberger.

Olympic Medical Center was recognized not only for devotion to helping patients and families in need through medical services, but for also for their role in the donation continuum. According to Schaiberger, partnership with Olympic Medical Center is instrumental to supporting LifeNet Health’s mission to Save Lives, Restore Health and Give Hope.
