Spiritual health services

Hospitals are places where people come face-to-face with the deepest aspects of life and mortality. For help through the challenging times, our interfaith chaplains are here for you and your family. Through interfaith ministry, chaplains guide patients and loved ones through illness and healing. Our chaplains are an integral part of the health care team and are committed to serve the spiritual and emotional needs of all people.

Who can benefit from a chaplain visit?
Patients, families, staff and volunteers can all benefit from talking with a chaplain, especially those:

  • in spiritual distress
  • whose illness will necessitate major lifestyle changes
  • whose illness is terminal
  • with emotional needs
  • experiencing grief
  • facing end of life
  • with no other spiritual or emotional support available
