Rev. Dr. Gary Gunderson has spent more than two decades studying the field of faith and public health, and helped developed care models that are making significant impacts in patients’ health. As vice president of FaithHealth at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in North Carolina, Gunderson has oversight of spiritual care, clinical pastoral education and dozens of counseling centers. He also serves as professor at Wake Forest University’s School of Divinity and School of Medicine. Gunderson’s work in Memphis, Tenn., which involved more than 600 congregational partners, showed dramatically lower hospitalization rates, reduced cost and significantly improved outcomes for patients. FaithHealthNC is working with the North Carolina Hospital Association and regional foundations to spread the model across the state.
