From Ruth M. Benefield

During Bill’s time as Director of Child Psychiatry and Behavioral Health at Seattle Children’s Hospital, I was his administrative partner.  He was a joy to work with…..always kind, thoughtful, committed to the Mission of the hospital and to increasing the understanding amongst medical and administrative leadership to the importance of mental health. Bill also possessed extraordinary skill clinically that was less understood and available within the medical community.

Bill considered moving to Mirabella in his retirement. I was excited by that possibility as were many of his physician peers that also live at Mirabella. Alas…..Horizon House won out and I have little doubt he contributed mightly to that community.

RIP….My friend.
