Statement regarding the death of Dr. Stephen Hatch:
On behalf of the Dupont Hospital family, its board and the entire Lutheran Health Network, we wish to share our deepest condolences with the family of Dr. Stephen Hatch and wife Kim. Our thoughts and prayers are also with their son Austin as he fights to recover from his injuries. Steve’s impact on Dupont as a physician partner and member of its board doesn’t even begin to tell the entire story of how important he was to this community and how much his loss saddens us all. Steve will be remembered professionally as an outstanding caregiver and an innovator who placed the needs of the patient above all else. More importantly, he was an outstanding father, husband and friend whose legacy will live on.
Todd C. Rumsey
Chairman, Dupont Hospital Board of Directors
