Along with two sisters, Dr. Ben Danielson was raised by an amazing single mom who instilled in him an appreciation for the value of education and a desire to be a contributing member of the community. In college he decided being a doctor was a good melding of scientific and human service interests. After finishing his undergraduate studies in Boston, Dr. Danielson’s medical education, residency and career have all been spent in Seattle.
Dr. Danielson has been the medical director of the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic since 1999. He works along side dedicated, talented staff who strive to uphold the clinic’s enduring tradition of growing wellness through quality care with dignity, community engagement, honoring culture and sustaining trust. He also works on the inpatient service at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
In addition, he is on the county’s board of health, the state’s health exchange board, various boards of philanthropic organizations, and works with several community groups. Dr. Danielson believes that an opportunity to serve an individual or a community is a cherished privilege. He also ascribes to the truism that health is more than healthcare and that any healthcare provider who strives to improve health must be active beyond the realm of their medical practice.
