Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics has recently announced the promotion of two staff members to key leadership positions at the new Mason Clinic, opening in February 2020.
Effective Oct. 1, Michele Tierney will take on the role of Director of Clinic Operations for Mason Clinic, while Breanna Turner will start her new role as Mason Clinic Front Office Supervisor. Both roles will ensure the smooth transition of MGH&FC services to the 60,000-square-foot medical office building.
Tierney joined the District in January 2018 and has worked in the health care field for 40 years, primarily at Virginia Mason Medical Center in positions ranging from IT Application Specialist to Clinic Manager. She currently works as a Clinic Manager for MGH Oakland Bay Pediatrics and the MGH Hoodsport Family Clinic. Tierney has family ties in Mason County and was drawn to MGH&FC in recent years due to the positive culture she encountered firsthand at the Hospital.
“The compassion that I saw in the Emergency Department during an incident with my best friend’s family truly stunned me,” Tierney recalled. “After that, I met with CEO Eric Moll, and I became excited about Mason General Hospital. I wanted to have more ties to the community and I was drawn to the mission, vision and values of the organization.”
Turner, who currently works as a receptionist at MGH Shelton Family Medicine, grew up in Kitsap and Mason counties. For years she made it her goal to obtain a job at MGH&FC, where her sister and mother worked. She loves that the District is family-oriented and focused on the patient. She has been in her current position for four years.
“Right now, everything I do is 100 percent about solving problems for our patients, from scheduling and answering calls to keeping insurance up to date,” she said. “This is a small community hospital and at Mason Clinic. I look forward to working as a team, moving forward in my new role to ensure excellent care of our patients.”
