CENTER VALLEY, Pa., (October 4, 2018) – Olympus Corporation of the Americas (OCA) announced today that it has been named to the 2018 list of 100 Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.

Qualifying adoption expenses include, but are not limited to adoption fees, attorney fees, court fees and travel expenses.
