We Live to Give.

In 1994, Don and Kim Eckenroth blazed the trail for hospice in this region with a vision “to provide the very best hospice care available in a manner that exemplifies Christ’s life and ministry.”

We live to give.

We find purpose and meaning through service. Whether caring for those in the final stage of their life, helping others in need or giving back to God for His many blessings, we strive to serve with hope in our hearts, the utmost compassion and unwavering faith.

“It is such a huge and undeserved blessing to work with Gentle Shepherd. And each of my team members is  a blessing to me as well. Their sacrificial love and service to our patients and families, as well as each other, is what sets us apart. I am grateful that they have chosen to dedicate their God-given gifts to our work here and to help those we serve make the most of every day.”

Leana Kail, CEO 

If you also “live to give,” then a career in hospice with Gentle Shepherd may be right for you. Employment here more than a job for our staff – it’s a calling. When you join our team, you will work with a team of incredibly dedicated, caring and seasoned professionals. The fact that many of our employees have been with us for years, some for decades, is a testimony to our culture and the exceptional care we provide.
