OMC gets clean audit 17 years in a row

The Washington State Auditor’s Office recently conducted its regular independent accountability audit of Olympic Medical Center from Jan. 1, 2016-Dec. 31,2016.

In the report summary, it states “District operations complied with applicable requirements and provided adequate safeguarding of public resources. The District also complied with state laws and regulations and its own policies and procedures in the areas we examined.”

The State Auditor examines areas representing the highest risk of fraud, loss, abuse or noncompliance, and in this audit focused on financial condition, self-insurance, cash receipting and physician subsidies.

“I am very proud of our finance team,” said Darryl Wolfe, OMC chief financial officer.

“They continue to set a high standard of excellence. These results also indicate that many others across Olympic Medical Center are excellent stewards of our public resources.”

The current audit report is available online at http://por tal.sao.wa.gov/ReportSearch along with historical audit reports.
