MEDEX Remembers PA Mark Patterson

All of us at MEDEX Northwest were saddened to learn of the recent passing of Mark Alan Patterson (September 11, 1941-October 9, 2021), an alumnus and longtime friend of the MEDEX family. Mark was a graduate of MEDEX Class 1 in 1969, one of fourteen military veterans selected by MEDEX founder Dr. Richard Smith and his colleagues and challenged to channel his hard-earned wartime medical expertise and experience into the demands of a newly emerging PA profession.
