We are happy to welcome Timothy Gay, M.D., as the newest member of the medical staff at Shriners Children's Spokane. Dr. Gay joins a team of specialists as the hospital’s newest pediatrician and hospitalist.

“I was drawn to Shriners Children's Spokane because providing access to high-quality care is a priority,” said Dr. Gay. “The healthcare system has a commitment to caring for children regardless of their family’s ability to pay, both things I respect. I am thrilled to join the Shriners Children's Spokane team.”
