Circle Member Gatherings

On March 19, 2019 PIH Health Foundation Circle of Excellence members gathered at Friendly Hills Country Club to hear from the PIH Health James P. Fitzgerald MD Spiritual Care Services department and learned about the many valuable programs and services they provide to our patients, caretakers, and our staff. Attendees also learned more about the new addition of a Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) program at PIH Health, which recently received its accreditation with glowing reviews and comments. The spiritual care services departments is now focused on future growth at PIH Health Hospital – Downey and hopes to add a CPE program on this campus as well as to add another full-time staff chaplain to serve our patients.

We thank our Circle of Excellence members and guests for attending and give a very special thanks to Urteaga Chiropractic & Sports Medicine for underwriting the event.
