Laboratory Staff at Olympic Medical and Jamestown Clinics Work Together

October 22, 2018 -
SEQUIM - Olympic Medical Center CEO Eric Lewis recognized 11 OMC laboratory employees at a recent board of commissioners meeting in Sequim. 

Olympic Medical Lab Assistants Russell Jackson, Lesley Welch, KatieRose Needham, Stephanie Winans, Mary Bittick, Pam Cadden, Idalis Larson, along with Lab Customer Service Representative Christina Miller and Jamestown Clinic Lab Assistants Darci Shaw, Donna Hagen and Darcie Welch.

During an extended maintenance closure of the OMC laboratory in the Jamestown Clinic, patients were seen instead at Olympic Medical’s laboratory in Sequim. Lab staff from both sites teamed up to maximize schedules and facility space in order to accommodate patients coming from the Jamestown clinic.

"For a physically small lab, staff did a remarkable job minimizing wait times for patients.  With the typical 100 patients per day, absorbing an additional 100 patients daily was a very difficult challenge.  This team repeatedly went above and beyond all expectations,” said Scott Kennedy, MD, chief medical officer.

During six weeks of working together, this team did an impressive job of managing the stresses that come with doubled volumes, by maintaining professionalism and continually providing great care to patients.
