We welcomed Angela Caffrey, MD, to the PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center Palliative Care and Whatcom Hospice team of providers in 2019. She comes to PeaceHealth after working with World Gospel Mission, serving intermittently in Kenya.
Improving access to and education around comprehensive, resource-appropriate end-of-life care for marginalized and underserved populations is of special interest to Dr. Caffrey, who has worked in developing countries since 2006.
Dr. Caffrey has an ongoing commitment to the integration of spiritual care with the practice of compassionate medicine. She completed her chaplaincy internship at Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services in Michigan in 2018 and is continuing in the Master of Divinity program at Fuller Seminary.
“Practicing medicine continues to be one of the greatest joys in my life. Being trusted to walk with patients and their loved ones through some of the most challenging and significant decisions in their lives continues to teach me many valuable lessons for which I am grateful," she said.
After 20 years away, Dr. Caffrey returns to Washington to be closer to her family in the Pacific Northwest. When she is not in the clinical setting, she enjoys mentoring students and physicians, hiking, cooking and learning about new cultures.
