Olympic Medical Center Foundation donates $55,000 to OMC for equipment

PORT ANGELES — The Olympic Medical Center Foundation has presented another $55,000 to OMC.

The donation was presented at the hospital board commission meeting Wednesday. It provides funds to purchase Biofire testing equipment for COVID-19 and other diseases and for radiation equipment that will serve urology, diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology at the cancer center in Sequim.

In addition, OMC Foundation Executive Director Bruce Skinner said the foundation raised a record $97,000 during its recent Red, Set, Go event, which means the foundation has already donated and/or raised $319,000 this year to or on behalf of OMC.

An additional $3,000 came in for the annual fundraising luncheon after totals were announced, Skinner said.

“We’ve said this many times this year — the community has been extremely generous,” he said.

Those interested in more information or in making a donation to the foundation can call the OMC Foundation office at 360-417-7144, by emailing [email protected] or by mail to 1015 Georgiana St., Port Angeles, WA 98362.

“We hope that many local people will become a part of our fundraising efforts,” OMC Foundation President Sherry Philips said.
