"While working as a general pediatrician in Washington, I was startled by the frequency and severity of child behavioral and mental-health problems that I was called upon to manage. Families asked me to help because, they said, specialty care was very difficult to access. I eventually decided to make this my professional focus, and I obtained additional training in psychiatry so that I could start addressing these unmet child mental-healthcare needs. I am fortunate to have the opportunity at Children’s to help primary care providers and families throughout the state improve the lives of children."

      Dr. Robert Hilt has been good to come down to Olympia to present CME (continuing medical education) education for our medical staff at Providence St. Peter Hospital. He provides useful tools to our primary care physicians on topics of import such as managing adolescent patients with depression. The high quality of his educational presentations are of great value to our physicians and, one may assume, ultimately improves patient care in our area.
