17 Nov Maggie Gardner, Certified Nurse-Midwife, Joins Women’s Health at OMC
Gardner brings additional experienced midwifery care to women on the Olympic Peninsula.
Olympic Medical Center welcomes Maggie Gardner, certified nurse-midwife, to the OMP Women’s Health team. Gardner joined the clinic this fall and will provide women’s health and midwifery services to patients on the Olympic Peninsula.
“We are pleased to welcome Maggie Gardner to the Women’s Health team,” said Chief Physician Officer Joshua Jones, MD. “She is a wonderful addition to the clinic and community.”
Gardner became a certified nurse-midwife in 2013 after earning a Master of Science in Nursing at Frontier Nursing University in Hyden, Ky., and she went on to receive a graduate certificate in public health from Capella University in Minneapolis, Minn. in 2020. She grew up in Vermont and worked in community hospitals in her home state for much of her midwifery career.
Gardner chose to relocate to the Olympic Peninsula to enjoy the mountains and trees that she loves in Vermont in a milder climate. “When I first visited Port Angeles, I instantly felt like I could see myself living here and being a part of the community,” said Gardner. “I love bumping into people whose babies I’ve caught when I’m in the grocery store, it’s what makes living and working in a small community great!”
Gardner enjoys the depth she can go to with patients, especially as she walks with women through the many phases of life. “I enjoy helping people become parents and watching their families grow. It’s the biggest honor of my life to be present when a new person makes their arrival into this world,” she said.
Gardner joins the Women’s Health Clinic team, which together provides well-woman care, contraception, and pregnancy and postpartum care. Gardner will see patients at the OMP Women’s Health clinics in Port Angeles and Sequim. For more information on services and hours, visit olympicmedical.org/services/womens-health
