Foundation funds treadmills for OMC

The Olympic Medical Center Foundation presented $51,924 to the Olympic Medical Center board of commissioners recently, which will be used to purchase two state-of- the-art treadmills that will provide for the advanced diagnosis of heart disease, the No. 1 killer in Clallam County.

The foundation already has given more than $205,000 to Olympic Medical Center in 2014 and will give more later in the year.

It has contributed over $2.3 million to the hospital since 2006.

The donation to cardiac services was made possible due to the record amount of money that was raised at this year’s Red, Set, Go Luncheon on Feb. 28.

“We anticipate giving more to OMC during the year,” said Executive Director Bruce Skinner. “We want to thank all of those donors that have made this event such a huge success.”

“The foundation has done wonderful things for cardiac patients at Olympic Medical Center,” said Olympic Medical Physician’s chief physician officer Rebecca Corley, M.D.

“They have allowed us to purchase blood pressure monitors, Zio patches, automatic external defibrillators and now vital treadmills.

“All of these devices have allowed us to enhance our diagnosis of heart disease,” Corley said.
