BUSINESS BRIEFS: New doctor onboard at Jefferson Healthcare … and other items

Business items on the North Olympic Peninsula.

PORT TOWNSEND — Jacqueline Osland, MD, FACS, general surgeon, recently joined Jefferson Healthcare Surgical Associates at the Surgery and Endoscopy Center.

Osland will start seeing patients this month.

“Having Dr. Jackie Osland join us at Surgical Associates will really round out the expertise of our surgical team,” said Dr. Jay Lawrence, chief of surgery.

“Her skills as a general surgeon, especially with breast cancer patients, will bring our services to a higher level at Jefferson Healthcare. We will have five surgeons available to our community, which is exciting and the reason we are expanding our facilities.”

Osland is board-certified by the American Board of Surgery. She graduated with honors from North Dakota State University College of Science and Mathematics with a degree in bacteriology and French.

She completed her medical degree with honors at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and did her residency in general surgery at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Wichita.

Grant for camera

PORT TOWNSEND — The Jefferson Healthcare Foundation recently was awarded a grant of $163,000 from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust to support the purchase of a new nuclear medicine gamma camera for the Jefferson Healthcare Radiology Department.

The foundation raised money for the nuclear camera purchase through a combination of individual donations and grants.

The new camera is anticipated to be in place and ready for use by December. It is replacing an older camera that has been in use for over 15 years.

This considerable upgrade will allow Jefferson Healthcare to expand the level of nuclear medicine examinations for both patients and physicians.
