Olympic Medical Physicians (OMP) welcomes Jan Thomas as the new clinic director for Primary Care Services. Thomas will oversee the Primary Care Clinic, as well as the anticoagulation clinics located there and at the Specialty Clinic in Sequim.
As the director, Thomas will coordinate all business and regulatory aspects of the OMP Primary Care Clinic, including the “day-to-day activities that allow the clinic’s providers to focus solely on caring for their patients and meeting the primary care needs of this community,” says Thomas.
Thomas looks forward to the challenges and opportunities this position has to offer. “While I’m coordinating all aspects of the clinic, I will also help with the transition to electronic medical records. This is a daunting task, but well worth the effort in terms of patient safety, quality of care and efficiency,” says Thomas.
Thomas earned a Master of Health Administration from the University of Colorado School of Business. Previously, Thomas worked with Community Health of Central Washington in Yakima, where she served as director of operations, and prior to that as administrator of Yakima Pediatric Associates, Inc. Thomas brings 15-plus years of clinic management experience to Olympic Medical Physicians.
“Jan’s exceptional clinic experience and her positive attitude are the perfect fit for the progress we have planned for the Primary Care Clinic,” says Sheri Greene, administrative director of Olympic Medical Physicians.
