Hospital’s Clinical Pastoral Care Training Program Designates Five as Lay-Healthcare Chaplains

Lanham, MD – On March 21, Doctors Community Hospital designated five people as lay-healthcare chaplains.  By completing its Clinical Pastoral Care Training Program, these designees elevated their knowledge to further provide religious and spiritual support to people (e.g. patients, family members and employees) within healthcare settings.

The Clinical Pastoral Care Training Program requires that each participant attend three eight-week training classes and complete 200 hours of practical training – all supervised by a board-certified healthcare chaplain and with the approval of Doctors Community Hospital’s certification endorsement committee.

The hospital congratulates this year’s recipients:

  • Mark Coleman,  Capitol Heights, MD
  • Dianna D. Limes-Ford, Capitol Heights, MD
  • Abiodun Olorunwunmi, Hyattsville, MD
  • Dale T. Jenkins, District Heights, MD
