Olympia Orthopaedic Associate's History

In 1972, Dr. John Coker started the practice in a small office on Ensign Road in Olympia. He was joined two years later by Dr. Jerome H. Zechmann and a year later by Dr. Alan Roser.  In 1993 Dr. Jerome H. Zechmann retired and passed his practice to his son, Dr. Jerome P. Zechmann. Two years later Dr. Coker retired and Dr. Brodie Wood joined the team.

Over the next 20 years, we not only grew through physical expansion but also in services.  Here is an overview of our journey.

1998 – The Westside Clinic was added on Yauger Way, near Capital Medical Center.

2002 – We expanded to add the Tumwater Clinic and Olympia Surgery Center on Mottman Rd.

January 2012 – Physical Therapy was added to our line of services.

September 2012 – The new Westside Facility (Surgery Center, MRI, Physical Therapy and Westside and Tumwater Clinics) opened.

March 2015 - Began performing Outpatient Joint Replacements in our Olympia Surgery Center.
