Father Tan Tran
In July 2013, Father Tan Tran was appointed by the Archdioceses to provide sacramental care to health care institutions in Council Bluffs which included Jennie Edmundson Hospital. As a member of the Jennie Chaplaincy Corp, Father Tran met monthly with the other volunteer chaplains to discuss updates and issues. In addition to being “on-call” for patients in need, Father Tran also served our staff and visitors with Ash Wednesday services, something our staff really appreciated. Father Tran also shared his violin skills during services, which was always a treat. We truly enjoyed getting to know Father Tran, his compassion and love for people shined brightly. He had a wonderful ability to work with people of all ages. Our patients and families appreciated his gentle spirit and kind smile.
