Chaplain Amy Hoyt
Amy brings to her work at Kadlec Regional Medical Center her sincere love for people and her vocational calling to companion with them through times of change, crisis, loss, courage, and hope. She began her work at Kadlec in January 2007, having come from Spokane where she formerly worked for Spokane County Juvenile Court as a guardian ad litem, a legal advocate for children involved with Child Protective Services.
Amy’s professional preparation for her work includes a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interpersonal Communication completed at Whitworth University in Spokane, a Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry at Gonzaga University in Spokane, and six units of Clinical Pastoral Education with Tri-Cities Chaplaincy. She is currently doing post-graduate work in Spirituality through Gonzaga.
Before moving to Washington in 1994, Amy raised a family in Southern California. She has two adult sons and four grandchildren in both California and Colorado. Amy’s youngest son in Colorado is the Pastor of Worship and Arts at Ft. Collins Baptist Church.
When she’s not working, Amy nourishes her spirit as she spends time hiking in the hillsides of the Tri-Cities area, as well as walking and cycling along the Columbia River near her home in Richland.
