PORT ANGELES  – The OMC Auxiliary presented three Olympic Medical Center departments with needed medical equipment as part of its annual "Wish List” ceremony on July 14 in Linkletter Hall at Olympic Memorial Hospital.

 "Hospitals demand up-to-date, quality medical equipment to aid in taking proper care of patients,” says Lorraine Wall, RN, chief nursing officer.

The OMC Auxiliary raises funds for Olympic Medical Center through the Auxiliary-run hospital gift shop, seasonal sales events and other fundraisers throughout the year. Additionally, Olympic Medical Center volunteers make a significant impact by giving their time and expertise to work with patients, visitors and staff throughout Olympic Medical.

"Volunteers at Olympic Medical Center contribute hundreds of in-service hours each year, working in various different areas, and they do so because they enjoy making a positive impact in the community,” says Whitten. "The OMC Auxiliary furthers this mission by working hard to raise needed funds to support the hospital’s mission of providing excellence in health care.”
