Dr. Michael Malek, a Danville resident and the lead hospitalist for the Palo Alto Medical Foundation in Dublin, has joined Hope Hospice as chief medical officer.

In the position, he will provide guidance for the Hope Hospice clinical team, help with patient management and serve as a liaison with the medical community.

Malek was one of the associate medical directors at Hope Hospice between 2005 and 2013.

"We are very fortunate to have him with us again," Hope Hospice CEO Bob Bohm said. "He shares our core values and is dedicated to helping our patients and their loved ones live each day to the fullest with dignity, hope and courage."

Board-certified in internal medicine, he has been with the Palo Alto Foundation for eight years and, currently, is the lead hospitalist for the foundation. He previously was in private practice for seven years.

"I am looking forward to being a part of the Hope Hospice family to help ensure a peaceful transition for people through end-of-life care," Malek said.

Malek lives in Danville with his wife and two children, ages 10 and 13.
