PORT ANGELES — Holly Wickersham, operations director at Olympic Medical Physicians, recently received OMC’s Leadership Award.
CEO Eric Lewis presented the award during OMC’s August leadership meeting.
Wickersham has been with Olympic Medical Physicians in a management capacity since 2007 and has been operations director since 2014.
In addition to her operational responsibilities, she has been a key member of the planning committee for the new medical office building opening later this year.
“Holly has been coordinating a lot of moving parts for transitioning to the new medical office building such as equipment, supplies, people, signage and interiors,” Lewis said.
The Medical Office Building is scheduled to open in December.
In the past seven months, Wickersham took on a larger administrative load as the administrative leaders searched and secured a new physician division chief.
