RHONDA CURRY — known to many Port Angeles residents for her work as a key administrator at Olympic Medical Center and as a community leader (she is a past president of the Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce) — has a new job in Bellingham.

Her last day at OMC is Friday (Oct. 26).

The move has been in the works for some time, and she'll be commuting between Port Angeles and Bellingham indefinitely (staying during the week in a condo in Bellingham). She and her husband, Tom, have a home in Port Angeles plus local business interests (Barhop Brewing and the Barhop Taproom).

Through Friday she can be reached at OMC at 360-417-7341; email: rlcurry@olympicmedical.org

Here is an announcement by Eric Lewis, CEO of Olympic Medical Center:

"This is to inform you that Rhonda Curry has resigned from her position as assistant administrator of strategic development for OMC.

"Rhonda has accepted a position with Peace Health in Bellingham — she will be the director of marketing and communications for their Northwest Network of Care.

"Her last day at OMC will be Friday, October 26.

"She will be greatly missed and we wish her the very best in the future.

"Rhonda was with OMC from 2001 to 2005, and returned in late 2006.

"During her tenure here, Rhonda has used her skills, knowledge and professionalism to bring our organization to a new level in terms of community perception.

"Her leadership in the areas of marketing, public relations, strategic planning, legislative advocacy, physician relations and grant development has helped OMC achieve many successes.

"Rhonda reinvented OMC's Strategic Plan into a document and process that we rely on heavily and refer to continuously.

"As the administrative liaison with the OMC Foundation, she has championed its mission to improve the lives of our patients, and she has helped to develop new fundraising opportunities such as the annual Red, Set, Go! luncheon for heart health.

"Thanks to Rhonda's role as co-chair of Olympic Medical's Wellness Committee and her personal commitment to “walking the talk” for health, employee wellness is now a major initiative here at OMC.

"Rhonda's work as administrative lead for the Swedish affiliation has resulted in the expansion of clinical services locally that will have long lasting benefits for OMC, our patients and our community.

"I appreciate the great progress accomplished under Rhonda's leadership.

"OMC will be hiring for a replacement position in the future, and we will have interim leadership in place during the transition."
