OUR MISSION: The OMC Foundation Exists
To Improve the Lives of Patients at Olympic Medical Center
Olympic Medical Center, Port Angeles
Olympic Medical Cancer Center, Sequim
Olympic Medical Center is one of the best rural hospitals in the United States. A comprehensive health care provider with a network of regional facilities including Olympic Medical Cancer Center, Olympic Medical Center relies on the dedication of the many volunteers of the Olympic Medical Center Foundation.
Since 1986, the OMC Foundation has provided more than 1.5 million dollars to the hospital, and Endowment funds have produced more than $700,000 in just eight years. This money goes towards state-of-the-art equipment and patient services. The Planned Giving and Donor Opportunity pages can offer you some of the options that will benefit you and the hospital for years to come.
The Foundation’s support comes from the many volunteers and donors who make the Great Olympic Peninsula Duck Derby, Festival of Trees, Sequim Harvest of Hope Winemaker’s Gala, Team OMC, and the Red, Set, Go! Women’s Heart Luncheon, enjoyable and empowering events involving people who are truly making a difference for Olympic Medical Center and Olympic Medical Cancer Center.
The Foundation is dedicated to providing equipment and services that will bring the most benefit for patients locally – close to family and friends.
