Introducing Our New Chaplain


Phillip R. Ramey, Director of Spirituality/Chaplain

Phillip is a local minister who has spent over a third of his life volunteering in nursing home ministry. Phillip began his full time chaplain work here at Riverview in February of 2014. Phillip also serves as Pastor of the Third Avenue Free Will Baptist Church, about one mile from our facility. He was recently voted “Best of the Best” Pastor for 2014 in our county’s newspaper. Along with having a heart for this community, Phillip also has a strong passion for this facility, it’s residents and staff.

At Riverview, we believe that nurturing the spirit is an integral part of resident care and quality of life. Our facility chaplain is an important part of our team and provides counseling and spiritual guidance for residents, their families, and staff.  Our chaplain also provides memorial services, hospital visits, resident home visits after discharge, and leads weekly Bible studies, worship services, and prayer groups.
