Chapters Health System Videos

We have all heard the saying that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” which is often attributed to Confucius (although modern-day usage can be tracked back to the early 1920s). So if a picture can tell a story quickly, imagine the possibilities of watching a video? We realize the potential of telling stories in this manner so we’d like to welcome you to Chapters Health System Videos.

It was for a wedding he wouldn’t be able to attend. With the help of Good Shepherd Hospice, this video was played during the daughter’s wedding after Dennis had passed.
