Kendall, Greenlee and Simone were breaking into Greg Madden's clinic when his son Josh caught them. In exchange for keeping their secret, Kendall got him a job on her mother's TV show, New Beginnings. Josh couldn't understand why his father wasn't pleased about his new position, and noticed he wanted to distance his son from Erica at every turn. The whole thing was puzzling, but Josh figured the two must have had a past history.
When Josh met and befriended Babe Carey, Erica was totally annoyed because of the whole baby switch fiasco, and she warned him to stay away from the woman. Her words went unheeded as Josh pretended to have an affair with Babe to get Jamie Martin to leave her so he could inherit his aunt's wealth.
Being the producer of Erica's show wasn't enough for Josh. He wanted more, and began drugging her to make her look ridiculous on camera. He set up newly-hired, Amanda Dillon to take the fall, and although Erica originally believed it was Amanda, she eventually learned the truth and fired Josh.
After saving Erica's life at the Mardi Gras ball, Josh, who had completed his medical degree, got a job at Pine Valley Hospital. Unfortunately, Greg Madden was not well-liked by the people of Pine Valley, and Josh was not well-received.
Jeff Martin returned to Pine Valley, and it looked as though Josh might redeem his reputation by being part of a hand-picked team for a medical assignment, but a secret that came to light explained Jeff's interest in Josh.
Josh's attraction to Babe continued to grow, despite her protests that she loved her husband, JR, and wanted to make their relationship work.
What Josh didn't know was that Greg Madden was not his biological father, Jeff Martin was. Jeff and Erica had conceived a child, and Erica had decided upon abortion. Rather than terminate her pregnancy, Greg had stolen her embryo and implanted it in his own wife. When Josh discovered the truth, Babe consoled him and tried talking him into accepting his newfound family.
Greg Madden was found dead by Colby Chandler upon her return to town - somebody had buried him alive. Anyone who was involved in the search for little Emma Martin was immediately a suspect. Josh was an emotional wreck, torn by hatred for what Greg had done to Dixie and other women, and loving him for the man who raised him. Josh cast a suspicious eye on JR Chandler and Jamie Martin as suspects in Greg's death, but in the end, Dixie and Zach were arrested. The two were later freed when Tad concocted a lie that cast doubt on their guilt.
Babe eventually faltered and fell into Josh's arms, giving him hope of a future with her. Unfortunately, Babe chose to return to JR, hoping he would forgive her. While in a drunken stupor and searching for Josh, JR went to Josh's hotel room and ended up taking a header off the balcony. It was Josh who saved his life. Josh fought alongside Zach and Ryan to save the Fusion women; Zach and Kendall used him to save Babe after she was attacked. He helped to fake Babe's death and then tried to get her to come away with him; Babe wouldn't leave her family. She broke things off with Josh.
Alone for a while, Josh began having an affair with Hannah Nichols. Their relationship was short-lived; Hannah left town. Josh continued to stand by his family and when Kendall went into premature labor with Ian, Josh helped to save the child's life. He and Zach bonded over Ian and Zach offered him a high position with Cambias. At the same time, Josh began sleeping with Greenlee to keep an eye on her for Zach and Kendall; their affair was short-lived.
Josh used his position to embezzle $20 million from Zach; Kendall helped him leave town and now Josh is on the run. Josh returned to town after the tornados and when he learned of Kendall's condition, vowed revenge on Zach. He was injured in a shoot out with Zach and pronounced brain dead at Pine Valley Memorial. Zach convinced Erica to use Josh's heart to save Kendall's life.

Erica returns to the Valley Inn and looks at pictures of her children. She picks up the photo of Josh and imagines he is there with her. His image slowly disappears.
At the casino Zach and Josh both fire their guns. Josh is hit and falls on top of Reese; Erica rushes to his side. "I just wanted a second chance," he mumbles and tells Erica to make sure Kendall is taken care of. The EMTs arrive and Zach tells them to keep Josh alive – so Kendall can have his heart! Erica asks what Zach means and he tells her about David's proclamation that Kendall is going to die without a heart transplant.
Angie turns to another doctor and asks him to run some tests on the drugs she stole from David's! Greenlee arrives and asks about Kendall; Angie tells her to talk to David but before he can answer her questions Kendall's monitors flat-line! David stabilizes Kendall but tells Greenlee that she won't make it through the night! She begs him to keep Kendall alive until the family arrives and then goes into Kendall's room. She begs Kendall to wake up but Kendall doesn't respond. Jake arrives and tells David that he will fight him. Angie sees Zach arrive and tells him that Kendall has already arrested once; he says they have a heart. Erica follows him in, trying to decide which child she should save! Zach goes straight to David and demands that he hurry the tests through so they know if Josh is a match for Kendall. David heads for the ER. Greenlee asks him what happened but Zach rushes to Kendall's side. Amanda arrives and runs into Jake. He warns her about JR – again – but Amanda won't listen. Jake takes the canceled check from his pocket and asks what she has done for David! Amanda says she doesn't know what the check is but Jake keeps pushing her. Amanda gives in and tells Jake that David paid her to get JR to drink again. "I'm for sale just like any other prostitute," she says and faints! Jake asks a friend to look after Amanda. She tells the doctor she needs a pregnancy test and makes him promise to keep the results quiet.
Angie works to save Josh's life as Erica watches from the hall. She tells Erica that Josh is brain dead! Bianca and Reese are there. Erica asks what is next and Angie says Erica has to decide whether to keep Josh on life support for the rest of his life or pull the plug. David and Zach arrive; David says Kendall will die by morning without a miracle and asks if they can use Josh's heart to save her. Angie tells Erica that Josh's heart is viable but only for a little while. David says the heart is Kendall's best hope. "Do it," she says. Erica and Bianca leave for some air and Greenlee goes to call Ryan. Reese stays with Zach, telling him things will be okay. She thanks him for saving her from Josh and starts to cry. He hugs her as Bianca returns; she hugs Reese, too. Erica returns. David and Angie come back and say even though the tests aren't back they are prepping both Josh and Kendall to speed things up. Bianca leads Erica into Josh's hospital room. Just then Angie's doctor friend comes back with the test results from the pills! Jake finds Angie and she fills him in on Josh's condition. He is worried until Angie says the ingredients in David's pills aren't FDA approved. "This is going to take him down," she says. Jesse arrives and overhears. She tells him about the drug tests and he questions how she found the pills and when she doesn't say, tells her to keep this to herself! The doctor returns to Amanda and says she is pregnant. A while later Jake comes in and guesses at her diagnosis; he asks who the father is but Amanda doesn't know!
In Josh's room Erica cries and apologizes for not understanding his pain and anger. Bianca cries behind her. "Kendall reached out to you and now you can reach out to her and live on inside her," Erica says. "I hope you finally find peace."
Zach goes to Kendall's room and tells her she'll be okay after the surgery. "You'll come back to us," he says, "I love you." David returns to the waiting room and says Josh is a match and they are starting surgery immediately. Everyone is worried and relieved at the same time. Josh and Kendall are wheeled into the operating rooms. Erica holds Josh's head down the hall as Zach concentrates on Kendall. "I'll always love you. I'm sorry," Erica whispers to Josh and kisses his hand.
