Sequim Gazette staff

The Board of Commissioners of Olympic Medical Center is seeking interested persons to apply for a now vacant position on their seven-person board.

Commissioner Heather Jeffers of Sequim announced that she is resigning her District No. 2 at-large position and is relocating out of the area, hospital board officials said last week.

Qualified applicants must reside in any of the three hospital districts within District 2, which includes areas west of Sequim (Agnew, Carlsborg, Robin Hill, Lost Mountain and others) along with some areas just east of Port Angeles. See to determine your voter precinct.

The most qualified applicant, hospital board officials said, will be appointed to serve until the next general election for the hospital district in November 2025.

Minimum time requirements include two monthly board meetings — held the first Wednesday of the month at 12:30 p.m., and the third Wednesday of the month at 6 p.m. — and any additional committee work, as assigned.

The Board of Commissioners is responsible for governing Olympic Medical Center and its inpatient and outpatient services, as well as major divisions including Olympic Medical Physicians and Olympic Medical Home Health.

To apply, please submit a letter of interest via the Olympic Medical Center website (

The submission due date is end of business day on June 5.

The Board will conduct interviews of qualified applicants the second week in June so that an appointment can be made in public on June 21 at the regularly scheduled board meeting, OMC officials said.
