Doctor accused of murder has license suspended

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

The State of Washington's Department of Health Medical Quality Assurance Commission has suspended the medical license of Louis C. Chen, a former King County physician criminally charged with murder.

The September 1 decision means Chen, 39, cannot practice medicine in Washington. He may request a hearing to challenge the Washington medical commission's charges and license suspension.

On August 16, Chen was criminally charged with two counts of aggravated first-degree murder in King County. According to documents filed in King County Superior Court, Chen is accused of killing his domestic partner, Eric Cooper, 29, and their young toddler son.

Last Monday, Chen pleaded not guilty in a Seattle courtroom to aggravated murder charges. He is currently being held without bail in the King County Jail.

The Medical Quality Assurance Commission protects and promotes public health, safety, and welfare in Washington by regulating competency and quality of physicians and physician assistants. The commission develops rules, policies, and procedures to promote high-quality health care to state residents.
