As a retired medical social worker and Olympic Medical Center patient, I am grateful for OMC’s services.
However, it operates on a thin financial margin.
To survive, OMC is already partnering with a Catholic hospital for their medical records services.
I fear OMC could have its secular status potentially compromised if Anne Marie Henninger, one of the three candidates for OMC commissioner/District 2 is elected.
I look for candidates who reflect my inclusive values.
Henninger works for Obria (formerly My Choices), the pregnancy counseling organization that opposes abortion. This information wasn’t shared at either the Voter Forum nor in the Voter Guide.
I don’t know the basis for her beliefs, but I fear that if she is elected, they could negatively affect OMC’s future. (affect future decisions).
We must keep our only hospital free to serve everyone. Clallam County serves diverse constituencies. All are entitled to medical services.
There are elderly people who want access to the Death with Dignity law, women who want abortions and gay people who have specific needs.
Does she oppose services for these people?
How would she address these kind of concerns.
