The Spiritual Care staff offers spiritual guidance and resources during hospitalization and periods of illness, crisis, and loss. The Chaplains routinely coordinate spiritual care services with family faith leaders and home faith communities.

Our services include:

  • Direct spiritual care and counseling to patients, families, and hospital employees
  • Spiritual resources such as prayer, scripture, worship services, and sacraments for patients and their families
  • Consultation on patient issues of religious or ethical significance
  • 24 hour on call services
