Olympic Medical Center recognized for support of tissue donation

LifeNet Health recently recognized Olympic Medical Center (OMC) for its outstanding support for the gift of tissue donation.

OMC received the Tissue Donation Standards of Excellence Award, which is given to hospital partners who achieve and sustain high standards for initiating the donation process.

The following nursing leaders were specifically recognized by LifeNet for supporting the tissue donation program: Katrin Junghanns-Royack, director of the ICU/telemetry unit; Joan Warren, director of the Olympic Medical Home Health; Aaron Possin, director of the medical/surgical/pediatrics unit; director of emergency services Trisha Duerr; Jessica Berry, administrative supervisor of nursing administration; education director Gretchen Souza; Chris Johnson, director of obstetrics and new family services, and chief nursing officer Ralph Parker.

“Community partners are an essential part of the donation process and are crucial to ensuring that a donor and their family’s final wishes to help others are honored,” OMC representatives said.

One tissue donor can help restore health to more than 150 patients in need, they said.
