Thank You Dr. Hirota for Your Leadership

Dr Hirota

Tacoma physician William "Bill" Hirota, MD led the Washington State Medical Association as president during a year that reshaped how health care is delivered now and into the future.

Dr. Hirota was a tireless advocate for physicians and physician assistants during this pandemic in ensuring payment parity for tele-health, encouraging non-covid patients to continue to seek care despite the "Stay Home, Stay Healthy" mandate, and commending the heroism and leadership of organized medicine from the onset of the crisis. He will now chair the WSMA Executive Committee in his role of past-president.
