Olympic Medical Center CEO Eric Lewis and Board President John Beitzel honored four Olympic Medical Heart Center staff at a board meeting.

Terri Church-Kropp, Lindi Matthews, Julie Sexton and Chrystina Westcott each received recognition for their efforts to improve access to cardiac services during the past several months at the Feb. 7 meeting.

Church-Kropp, a cardiac wellness technician II performs ambulatory monitor (Zio patch) hook-ups in Sequim, which has reduced the need for patients to travel for the service, according to a news release.

Matthews’ work to streamline staffing and wait times for cardiac rehabilitation services has resulted in an increase from 3,000 visits in 2016 to 4,200 in 2017, according to the release.

Referral coordinator Sexton oversees the heart center customer service operations including referrals, scheduling and initial patient contact for nearly 10,000 center outpatient visits annually.

Westcott, a cardiac device technician II, has been key to maintaining services to more than 700 cardiac device patients during the implementation of a PaceArt database.

Her work has allowed the cardiac device clinic to move towards a fully electronic records system.
