PORT ANGELES – Ami Calvert, manager, Olympic Medical Heart Center, recently earned OMC’s Leadership Award for her contributions in expanding programs and improving cardiac services at Olympic Medical Heart Center. Chief Executive Officer Eric Lewis presented the award.
"Since Ami became manager of the Heart Center in 2013, volumes for the echocardiogram and nuclear medicine programs have increased while wait times have decreased significantly for Medicare and Medicaid patients,” said Lewis.
Other accomplishments cited include:
- The addition of a Zio Patch heart rhythm management program that has helped over 1,000 patients since its launch in 2015
- Increased participation in the Heart Center’s Cardiac Rehabilitation program – from approximately 30 to 40 patients a year to more than 200 patients in 2015
- Improved echocardiogram availability with the addition of Saturday scheduling
"In addition to program development, Ami has fostered a collaborative relationship with staff and other departments, resulting in improvements in provider engagement and communication, as well as employee satisfaction,” stated Lewis.
