The Spiritual Care Department is pleased to announced that we have 7 new chaplains for 2022 who will be joining us at the beginning of the year to ensure that all of the residents who have requested emotional and spiritual support (over 90 residents at this time) will be visited with prompt, compassionate and skilled care.  Our new chaplains will be participating in a 9-month training program taught by experienced supervisors Liz Gimmestad and Joan Jolly in conjunction with their clinical visits.  Our new chaplains will receive ongoing mentorship from me as members of the Spiritual Care Department.  Attached below are profiles for your reference.

Thank you for welcoming our chaplains to Josephine and onto your floors in early 2022.  For questions or additional information, please contact me at (360) 629-2126 est.215 or via email at


With gratitude –
