Mason Health Hires Primary Care Manager

With the Grand Opening of Mason Clinic scheduled for Friday, Feb. 21, and Mason Clinic opening for services on Monday, Feb. 24, Mason Health continues to create new jobs to meet the health care needs of our growing district. Mason Health is pleased to announce the hiring of Kelly North as the new Primary Care Manager. North will oversee primary care services at Mason Clinic and Hoodsport Family Clinic.

“I love the community rural health setting,” she said. “What I love about Mason Health is that it is rural health care. It’s a small-town feel, but it operates like a professional hospital.”

North is a Washington native who joined the Mason Health team on Nov. 25. Her medical career began in high school in Everett, where she worked part-time in a medical office (as well as part-time serving ice cream at Baskin Robbins). She explored Certified Nursing Assistant programs, but eventually worked for 24 years with the Western Washington Medical Group, working her way up to the role of Practice Administrator.

North moved to Port Angeles in 2011 and worked for eight years as a Clinic Manager with Olympic Medical Physicians, where she oversaw the managements of the general surgery, women’s health and walk-in clinics. She set the schedule for employees and providers, and was also involved in the interviewing and hiring of clinic staff and new providers.

North is in the process of buying a home in Shelton. She loves to travel and spend time with her two grandchildren, as well as her boxer Jakobi.

“At Mason Clinic, I am looking forward to standardizing some workflows between the clinics,” she said.

Mason Clinic will open on Feb. 24, with primary care, orthopedics, walk-in and laboratory services. To stay up-to-date on clinic moves and service updates at Mason Clinic, visit www.masongeneral.com.
