Milestone: OMC’s Landry earns September leadership award

Ginger Landry earned Olympic Medical Center’s Leadership Award in September, the organization announced recently.

OMC chief medical officer Dr. Scott Kennedy presented the award, recognizing Landry for her dedicated service to the Olympic Medical Center Laboratory and in the community during her tenure as Laboratory Services Manager.

Landry recently transferred from the laboratory to the Olympic Medical Physicians Patient Care department where she’ll continue putting her leadership skills to work as a care navigator.

“Ginger has been a steady and knowledgeable leader in the lab,” Kennedy said. “She has always been dedicated to doing work of the highest quality, and her door was always open to her staff.”

Kennedy called Landry the epitome of a devoted and skilled leader.

Landry has worked in health care on the Olympic Peninsula for more than 30 years. She began her clinical career in the lab at the Port Angeles Clinic in 1990, which then became Virginia Mason Clinic and was finally purchased by OMC in 2006.

As a laboratory services manager, Landry supervised 15 lab assistants at clinic locations in Sequim and Port Angeles.

Right: Pieces of Civil War veteran Moore Waldron’s headstone can be seen in the right-hand corner of this photograph. Historical preservationist Mick Hersey, left, and the Taylor family of Gig Harbor returned the pieces to the Pioneer Memorial Park of Sequim for their friends the Englands (Moore’s descendants). The Englands read in the Sequim Gazette about the Sequim Garden Club’s preservation efforts at the park and decided to return these pieces for restoration. Moore now will have two markers in the park, as the Veteran’s Administration commissioned a new stone for Waldron in 2017 — an article about which can also be found on the Sequim Gazettte’s website. Moore moved to Sequim with his family in 1905 and died in 1908. Moore had five children and has descendants in Sequim and Pierce County as well as other places. Moore’s great-grandson is the founder of the Waldron Endoscopy Center in Tacoma, according to Cheryl England. Sequim Gazette photo by Emily Matthiessen
