Region’s health care agencies gather for yearly convening

The Olympic region’s health care providers will gather 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 25, at the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Center’s Red Cedar Hall in Blyn, for the group’s second yearly convening.

Olympic Community of Health (OCH) will host and facilitate the meeting, and will include representation from the region’s primary care, behavioral health, and substance use disorder providers, in addition to tribal health clinics, hospitals, community-based organizations, social services and public health officials.

Natural Community of Care Convenings offer opportunities for providers to collaborate and network with the goal of improving care throughout the region.

“The regional convening will allow us to share knowledge and work toward OCH’s collective goals of improved health in our communities,” OCH executive director Celeste Schoenthaler said. “We will gather to reflect on what we have already accomplished, build and strengthen partnerships across the region, and learn from one another’s successes and best practices in our shared effort toward Medicaid transformation.”
