PORT ANGELES: Olympic hospital officials authorize contract with Virginia Mason


PORT ANGELES — Hospital district commissioners authorized Olympic Medical Center Administrator Mike Glenn to expand the hospitalist program Wednesday.

Virginia Mason Medical Center is expected to be offered a contract to provide a second hospitalist — a nighttime, on-site doctor who consults with a patient’s primary care physician — for Olympic Memorial Hospital, 939 Caroline St.

The contract will call for a second Virginia Mason physician to provide on-site services between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., 365 days per year at an annual cost of $190,000 to the medical center.

“We have spent a great deal of time talking about this program,” Glenn said Wednesday, urging hospital commissioners to authorize the contract. “Now, it is time to move on with it.”
