NASHVILLE – Tammy Davis, a nurse practitioner with Summit Pacific Medical Center in Elma, was among the recipients honored by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) with a State Award for Excellence at the group’s national conference last month in Nashville. The award recognizes a nurse practitioner (NP) in a state who demonstrates excellence in practice.
“From the quality of care she provides to patients, to the leadership roles she accepts both in and outside of our organization, Tammy has truly defined herself as a leader in the broader healthcare community,” said Renee Jensen, CEO at Summit Pacific Medical Center. Davis has been with Summit Pacific since early 2007. She has served as both Summit Pacific’s medical staff president, as well as president of the East Grays Harbor medical staff team. She was the lead provider in helping implement the medical center’s electronic medical record as well as an integral part of the Patient Centered Medical Home project.
Summit Pacific will celebrate Davis’ award and accomplishments Friday, July 25, at 2:30 p.m. All those who wish to attend and congratulate her are invited. The celebration will take place at Summit Pacific Medical Center’s Kelsey Conference Room, 600 E. Main St. in Elma. There will be a short presentation followed with light snacks, cake and refreshments. No RSVP is required. For more information call (360) 346-2250.
