Arp joins OMC as Director of Emergency Services

Stefanie Arp, RN, MSN, was recently named director of emergency services at Olympic Medical Center.

She has worked as a nurse since 1987 and became a trauma nurse specialist in 2001.

“Stefanie will be a tremendous resource for the front-line staff in our emergency department and trauma unit,” Lorraine Wall, chief nursing officer and hospital chief operating officer, said.

“This position will allow me to continue with my passion of caring for the critically ill,” Arp said.

“Plus, the employees at OMC are passionate about where they work, which aligns with my values in nursing.”

Olympic Medical’s emergency services staff sees more than 31,000 patients each year.

The emergency department has 20 exam rooms, including four secure “swing rooms,” two dedicated secure rooms, one negative air pressure room for patients with certain communicable diseases and one decontamination room.

OMC is a Level 3 Trauma Center, a state designation that requires specific training for physicians and nursing staff, the formation of a trauma team at a full or modified level, having 24-hour call coverage for general surgeons and orthopaedic surgeons, and adherence to state policies and procedures.
