PULLMAN, WA–Pullman Regional Hospital has named Guillermo Modad, MD Medical Director of Hospitalist Services. The position oversees the Hospitalist program at Pullman Regional Hospital, including the development and implementation of policies, education, scheduling, and continued leadership.
Hospitalists care for hospitalized patients; they coordinate care with nurses, specialists, physical and respiratory therapists as well as a patient’s primary care physician. They are uniquely qualified to care for acutely ill patients. In his Medical Director role, Dr. Modad will also support infusion services provided through the hospital’s Same Day Services department.
Dr. Modad attended medical school at Loma Linda University in California and completed his residency at Loma Linda Medical Center. He has been providing care on the Palouse since 2014 in both hospitalist and emergency medical settings, with an emphasis in pediatrics. Prior to his Medical Director role, Dr. Modad has provided both hospitalist and emergency care at Pullman Regional Hospital since 2019 in a part time capacity.
“Dr. Modad’s experience caring for patients on the Palouse coupled with his pediatrics background make him an exceptional physician. I’m confident his leadership of Hospitalist Services here at Pullman Regional Hospital will continue to elevate the inpatient experience,” says Dr. Pete Mikkelsen, Medical Director of Emergency Services and Chief Medical Officer for Pullman Regional Hospital.
Dr. Modad enjoys the problem-solving component of providing care and values the opportunity to make meaningful relationships with patients and their families. He takes a patient-centered approach to making decisions and determining treatment options.
“I love being a hospitalist in this community. In addition to being able to provide care for a wide variety of medical problems, I am able to form meaningful relationships with patients and their families,” says Dr. Guillermo Modad, Medical Director of Hospitalist Services for Pullman Regional Hospital. “We provide whole person care- from the moment patients are hospitalized we manage the medical problems, coordinate specialty consultation, and work with a multidisciplinary team to plan for a successful discharge.”
