Olympic Medical Center promotes 2 to director positions

Olympic Medical Center recently announced internal promotions of two employees to positions of director in their respective offices.

Wendy Willey, who has worked as manager of lab services for two years, replaced Deby King as director of lab services; King retired earlier this month. Willey’s previous roles directing lab services for Confluence in Wenatchee, combined with her effective work as manager in the OMC lab, results in 20 years of experience and made her the top choice to take on this role, OMC officials said.

“She brings important experience, energy and service development leadership skills to this critical role,” chief medical officer Dr. Scott Kennedy said. “We are thrilled to have her as our new laboratory services director.”

Franklin Pangrazi joined Olympic Medical Center as purchasing manager in the fall of 2018, coming from the Virginia Mason system where he spent three years working in supply chain at their Yakima Facility. He has taken the mantle of materials management director.

Kathi Pressley, who has been the director of materials management for many years, retires on Aug. 2, and has been working alongside Pangrazi throughout July.

“Franklin has performed well here at Olympic Medical and is well positioned for this promotion,” OMC chief financial officer Darryl Wolfe said. “He underwent a competitive process and did very well. He knows he has big shoes to fill, but is ready for the challenge, and is committed to helping us continue to move our organization forward.”
