OMC Medical Office Building

buildings were at end of life; it was difficult to recruit new clinic outpatient physicians to Port Angeles due to poor facilities; we needed more parking; and patients didn’t like the clinic spaces much either. Operating separate clinics in different places — even though they were so close together — is incredibly inefficient, and it wasn’t the best way to apply our resources to best serve our patients. Building new structures is something we had to do, so we put our minds to designing and constructing a facility that makes sense for the needs of our particular patient and community population, provides efficiencies of scale for operating a clinic, offers a nice place to work for our current providers and clinic staff, and serves as a beacon for attracting new physicians and employees to our area. The Medical Office Building is the result of our strategies and planning. Standing at the main entrance of our hospital looking out at our Port Angeles campus, and knowing our patients can more conveniently access

This building is a testament to the commitment of our board of commissioners who’ve had a continuing vision to meet the health care needs of our community, as well as their collective patience in purchasing property in a fiscally responsible way. This project has been a

Last, but not least, we are also proud to display in this building the work of some of the Olympic Peninsula community’s most talented photographers.

to enjoy these beautiful pieces at your next visit. Regardless of if you are a patient, we invite you to experience the Medical Office Building, meet our staff, visit a free health fair and participate in our health care lecture series from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 22. The opening ceremony is at 10 a.m. Your friend in health care, Eric Lewis

We’ve got a really dedicated group of providers and staff.

— Dr. Josh Jones

Jones said. “This means more appointments, more ability to see your primary care provider or your specialist.” What really stands out, though, is the Walk-In Clinic. “I can’t emphasize what a big need that is,” said Eric Lewis, chief executive officer of Olympic Medical Center. The Walk-In Clinic, Dr. Jones emphasized, is not an urgent care center. It welcomes patients who have more acute injuries and illnesses. (For more information on the Walk-In Clinic, see Page 8.)

With the integration of specialties, physicians and operations in the building, health care has become easier for patients and staff. “We’ve got one site instead of all these different buildings,” Dr. Jones said. “People had to hunt around to figure out where to go. Having these providers within physical proximity to each other makes consultation, collaboration and integrated care a lot easier to provide.” The now-completed walkways, lined with fresh flowers, shrubs and trees, connect patients to the Medical Office Building from the

hospital’s main entrance, making it easier for patients to make multiple appointments in one day. “We’ve got a really dedicated group of providers and staff ... and being in close proximity to each other will allow us to provide exceptional patient care in the OMP way — with a focus on patient satisfaction, safety and excellent evidence-based medicine.” The new building also has helped staff discover places for improvement. With the exception of the Walk-In Clinic, Dr. Jones said, they’ve consolidated to one phone number in the facility. With this project, redundancies in staffing have been addressed, too. “Everybody who had a job at the other clinics, they have jobs there,” Dr. Jones said. >> BUILDING continued on Page 4

DESIGN The layout of the facility was discussed extensively with OMC’s board and with other hospitals that have recently designed new facilities. “OMC has been thinking about this for a long time,” Lewis said. “We knew we needed to convert from an inpatient-focused facility to an outpatient-focused facility. We knew we had to make this investment.” Once the decision was made to go ahead with construction plans, the next step — after obtaining roughly 10 land purchases over the course of 15 years — was design research. “We’ve done a lot of study on other new medical office buildings that have been built in Western Washington and other organizations before finalizing the design of this one,” Dr. Jones said. “We asked the other organizations whose sites we visited what’s one thing you would have done differently, and they all said they’d make the exam rooms a little bit bigger, so we did. “We added a foot to the dimensions of the exam rooms on both sides ... which is really helpful as the technology of medicine changes. There’s more and more that need to go in the rooms,” he said. Even with all of the specialties offered in the new space, Dr. Jones said the layout is conducive to their goals — and there’s still more room to grow. “It fits together very nicely, in a nice kind of Tetris-style package,” Dr. Jones said. “It flows very well, and it’s a much different feel than anything else in

the community. “It’s been very well-received so far by providers and patients in terms of the airiness, the roominess, people getting in and out,” Dr. Jones said. The facility also has an X-ray suite and a laboratory to do blood draws, as consolidation was a major goal in the construction of the new facility. “Having an up-to-date X-ray area in the center of the clinic has really improved the patient flow and makes for a better patient experience,” said Loren Larson, MD, orthopaedic surgery. LOCATION Prior to the new facility being built, clinic services existed in old buildings that were at the end of their usefulness and increasingly expensive to maintain. These structures did not necessarily provide convenience or comfort to patients, either. “We found patients and staff were dissatisfied by the conditions of the older buildings, and we had difficulty recruiting physicians our community needs due to the lack of space,” Lewis said. Registration and other support services have been consolidated into one building, preventing confusion and adding convenience to patients, the community and employees of OMC. Both Lewis and Dr. Jones said parking has been a major inconvenience for those seeking medical assistance. “We added 200 new parking spots,” Lewis said. “It gives us a campus. By closing Caroline [Street] by the Emergency Department, we were able to vastly expand our parking and develop a campus feel similar to Sequim.”

goals right now.” New hires have been brought in from all over, including Wyoming, South Dakota and Oregon. “We’re bringing people into the community,” Dr. Jones added. New additions include a new orthopaedic surgeon, John Seddon, MD, with physician’s assistant Chris Yujuico, PA-C. A new cardiologist, Robert Henson, MD, has also joined the ranks, plus David Stinard, PA-C, gastroenterology. “There is a lot of space and versatility here in terms of what we can do now versus what we had in the old standalone clinic,” Stinard said.

Dr. Finman said the clinic team has the goal and challenge of informing and educating the local community (patients and colleagues alike) about their role and their scope of clinic-based services. Staff members have been making ongoing efforts to share information with the community through brochures, information on the OMC website, signage in the lobby and media outreach, among other outreach methods. “We hope that kind of information will contribute to accurate expectations and a reasonable understanding of what it is that we do best in our clinics, as well as an awareness of those circumstances where a person may be better served at a facility that is more suited to their particular need,” Dr. Finman said. The Walk-In Clinic has seen its fair share of bumps and glitches expected with a new building, a new team and an expanded operation, but Dr. Finman said his team is handling the transitions exponetially well. “We are, of course, working to address those kinds of issues especially during these first few months of being open, and we really do appreciate patients’ kind patience with the construction-related issues, staff training, streamlining efforts and similar circumstances inherent in a
