Provider of the Quarter

At Hospice of the Northwest, we rely on nurses, doctors, pharmacists, first responders, and other providers to be our eyes, ears, and support out in the community. We are able to provide compassion and dignity to our patients because of the partnerships we have with other healthcare teams, and we’re so appreciative of their willingness to go above and beyond to assist when we have unusual patient situations. Because of the importance of these relationships, HNW developed a Provider of the Quarter program to recognize and honor these individuals and teams with a presentation and a certificate of appreciation. Below is our current featured POQ recipient.

Kevin Bingham, RPh

Pharmacist - Hilltop Pharmacy

At Hospice of the Northwest, we provide compassion and dignity every moment of life for our patients and their loved ones. We couldn’t do this without an extended circle of support. We rely on nurses, doctors, pharmacists, first responders and other primary care providers to be our eyes and ears, and to assist in serving our community. For the fourth quarter of 2018, we recognized Kevin Bingham, RPh of Hilltop Pharmacy in Mount Vernon as an incredible member of our team in caring for our patients.

Our doctors will consult with Kevin on difficult cases where certain medications are needed, and he always offers his time to clarify what options would provide the best comfort and alleviate symptoms for our patients.

“Sometimes we run into roadblocks when looking for ways to help our patients,” says Dr. Leslie Estep, Assistant Medical Director at Hospice of the Northwest. “Kevin goes above and beyond to find solutions. He will research what medications might work best in a certain situation, and he stocks products we might need so they are ready to treat patients’ symptoms,” she added.

“Kevin always finds a way to say yes, and we appreciate that so much when we are helping patients.”

Last week we surprised Kevin and his excellent support staff with a Provider of the Quarter certificate. We are so honored and grateful for all that he does to support our mission at hospice, and we’re looking forward to this continued partnership in years to come.
