    Northwest Respiratory & Medical is proud to announce and welcome Eric Craig, RT as the new Respiratory Therapist.  Craig will be responsible for oversight of the CPAP/BiPAP department.  He will be working closely with local health care providers to be able to provide the best respiratory care possible. 
    Craig will be moving with his family to the Moscow area at the end of the month.  “We felt welcomed and at home from the moment we entered Moscow,” states Craig.  He, his wife Jena and two children, Trinity 14 and Trapper 7 all enjoy outdoor activities and nature and are looking forward to the abundant outdoor activities available on the Palouse. 
    The care of respiratory conditions has interested Craig for many years.  He graduated from Stevens Henager, with honors, in 2000 as a Respiratory Therapist.  During his two years of education, he also was actively involved at several hospitals and Durable Medical Equipment (DME) suppliers where he obtained hands on skills which he would be able to apply to his patient care once he obtained his degree.  Before his graduation he was offered a position with a local DME as their Respiratory Therapist.  Craig proudly says, “My education and clinical experiences have given me the knowledge needed to provide my patients with the best knowledge care for them to face any respiratory illness they may encounter.”
    “We are thrilled to add Eric to our family.  From our first conversation, we knew this would be a great fit for us, for Eric’s family and most importantly, for our patients who deserve and rightly have come to expect the very best care from us here at Northwest Respiratory & Medical,” states Owner/Manager Aaron Hess.
    Northwest Respiratory & Medical is truly a local, family owned business.  It was established in 1982, originally as Northwest Pharmacy, by Mic and Janice Hess.  In 1988 the Hess’s purchased their second pharmacy and gift store in Potlatch, Idaho.  As community needs changed, the Moscow store’s focus shifted to the Durable Medical Equipment (DME) services.

We are dedicated to providing the highest quality goods and services to those suffering from temporary disabilities or life-threatening illnesses throughout Latah and Whitman Counties.
