After medical school Dr. Hoehn completed an internship and residency in family medicine at the University of Calgary Foothills Hospital.
As soon as his training was complete, he set out to fulfill a lifelong dream of medical mission service in Africa. He and his wife, Deanne, served at Maluti Adventist Hospital in Lesotho for just over three years before they were called to Mwami Adventist Hospital in Zambia. There, Dr. Hoehn served as medical director of the 150-bed mission hospital for nine years.
While in Africa, he and Deanne welcomed two sons and enjoyed forming meaningful relationships within their community. As medical director, Dr. Hoehn prioritized unifying the diverse hospital staff and elevating the level of care by recruiting care providers and expanding the nursing school.
Dr. Hoehn settled in Walla Walla, Washington, in 1987 where he practiced until his retirement in 2017. He has led 10 mission trips back to Africa, and remains passionate about mission service. Today, he enjoys writing and spending time with his grandchildren.
