PORT ANGELES — Despite Olympic Medical Center’s recruitment efforts, some eastern Clallam County residents are continuing to have a difficult time finding a physician.
The hospital’s Chief Executive Officer Mike Glenn reported on the doctor shortage during an Olympic Medical Center board meeting Wednesday.
“We thought we’d met the need in Sequim,” Glenn told the elected hospital district commissioners. “But, there is still a problem with primary care access in Port Angeles and Sequim.”
Glenn sees the access problem becoming more serious in Port Angeles, too.
“The acute need is in the under-insured categories,” Glenn said.
