He has held various positions in development for the institution since 1997. According to Dr. Rebecca Stoltzfus, president of Goshen College, “Jim has advanced the mission of Goshen College with skill and unflagging enthusiasm for the past 20 years. Goshen Health is fortunate to gain his leadership, and we are glad that his talent will remain in the neighborhood.”

“Serving this community is something I am passionate about. I have had the privilege of being a part of Goshen for many years and have seen first-hand the power of collaboration among our friends and neighbors. I look forward to working closely with community leaders and the Colleagues at Goshen Health to build a stronger and healthier future for generations to come,” Caskey said.
