Olympic Physicians will officially become a part of Public Hospital District No. 1 of Mason County on December 2.
The practice brings a strong culture of innovation and quality improvement as evidenced through the leadership of Dr. Mark Schlauderaff and Pam Schlauderaff with the clinic’s successful Medical Home journey. This is a is a primary care-based model that at its core puts the patient first by actively engaging, monitoring, and advocating for the patient.
“They are both pioneers and thought leaders in the healthcare arena,” said Eric Moll, CEO of Mason General Hospital and the District. “Dr. Schlauderaff brings a passion for quality improvement and a willingness to share his knowledge and mentorship as it relates to Internal Medicine. He is also the Chief of ICU at MGH playing a pivotal leadership role in the provision of critical care at MGH.”
Moll said the addition of Olympic Physicians will ensure that there will be a community-wide Electronic Medical Records program as the District launches Cerner in January 2014. This change will increase MGH&FC’s ability to share vital patient care information throughout various care delivery settings.
