Chaplaincy Health Care is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, non-sectarian organization serving South-Eastern Washington State - primarily in and around the Tri-Cities. We guide, comfort, and care for people experiencing serious illness, end of life, behavioral health issues, personal crisis, and loss.
Our heritage of compassion began in 1971 when a group of local churches established a program with one chaplain to provide outreach to people not being served in jails and nursing homes, and people coping with death or the loss of a loved one. Incorporated in 1974, we added more chaplains and volunteers during the next decade and, in 1981, we accepted our first hospice patient. In 1996, the community built our current 10-bed Hospice In-Patient Unit. In 2004, we opened Cork’s Place, a dedicated grief support center for children, teenagers, and families.
Our mission is to “serve others with exemplary spiritual, emotional, and physical care.” Our services include hospice care, palliative care, grief care, behavioral health and counseling, and chaplain services.
