Dr. Larry Hull, founder of Washington Orthopaedic Center

Our History

Washington Orthopaedic Center was founded by Dr. Larry Hull in 1973 with a dream of providing quality care to area residents through an organization committed to orthopedic medicine and guided by Christian principles.

After 35 years of service providing orthopedic care to the people of Lewis County and surrounding areas, Dr. Hull announced his retirement effective January 3, 2008.

Although retired, he continued his medical mission work. He took nearly 30 trips since 1976, mostly in Central America and Papua New Guinea, providing care and equipment to needy people.

Dr. Hull organized multiple mission trips which enabled the donation of orthopedic equipment and training to third world countries.

In conjunction with his family-owned coffee plantation in Papua New Guinea, he assisted in building an on-site family medical clinic for the local residents.

Sadly, in April of 2018 Dr. Hull passed away. He will be remembered for his passionate orthopedic care and his for his dedication to humanitarian work.
