Gobel Group Press ReleasePress Release

Tacoma, WA – Gobel Group, the leading consulting firm working exclusively in healthcare philanthropy, is pleased to announce a partnership with CHI Franciscan Health. CHI Franciscan Health offers outstanding care from highly skilled providers for patients throughout the Seattle and Tacoma areas.
CHI Franciscan Health was built on a foundation of reverence and integrity. In 1891, the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia established St. Joseph Hospital, now known as St. Joseph Medical Center, in Tacoma. Over the years, the Franciscan Health System has grown with the enduring goal of fulfilling the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of the people they serve.
CHI Franciscan’s hospitals, clinics and outpatient centers offer expert providers and health care services for the Puget Sound area. From a Family Birth Center with a Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), to urgent care and chronic disease management, CHI Franciscan focuses on high-quality care based on topnotch research and education.
Gobel is partnering with CHI Franciscan to launch a best in class Grateful Patient and Family Philanthropy Program, while developing a culture of gratitude across the institution. This program harmoniously resonates with the spirit of CHI Franciscan’s mission to emphasize human dignity and social justice while creating healthier communities.
“We are thrilled to partner with Gobel Group on a new Grateful Patient and Family Philanthropy program,” said Greg Unruh, President, Franciscan Foundation. “CHI Franciscan is committed to delivering the best possible patient care regardless of income, and philanthropy efforts like these are a key way to expand access to high-quality services for all the communities we serve. Gobel’s focus on compassion, empathy, and gratitude could not be a better fit for our mission and values.”
