WALLA WALLA — Walla Walla General Hospital has hired a new hospitalist who is a familiar face to the Walla Walla Valley.
Dr. Albert J. Rick is the son of longtime pediatrician Calvin Rick, also of WWGH, and a graduate of Walla Walla Valley Academy and Walla Walla University, said Kristi Spurgeon Johnson, director of marketing and communication.
Albert Rick received his degree at Loma Linda University School of Medicine and completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at Oregon Health & Science University. While there, he cared for patients admitted to the University Hospital, as well as serving the homeless youth in downtown Portland.
Rick joins three other hospitalists at General.
