YAKIMA, Wash.-- The Home Care Association of Washington will present their "Physician of the Year" award tomorrow to a Yakima doctor.

The group selected Doctor Patrick Waber for his work as Hospice Medical Director at Memorial Hospital. Waber was nominated by the Memorial Home Care Services staff.

He says he's honored but feels his staff also deserves credit for the quality of the hospice program.

"It was nice to be... Recognized. It's nice to have our community recognized, it's nice to have our hospice program and our home health program recognized," says Waber.

Waber has served as the hospice director for ten years. He says he's excited to continue his work with the program.

He'll be honored tomorrow at the home care association's annual conference in Renton.
