At Children’s Colorado, our staff of spiritual care professionals, called chaplains, are available for spiritual support. The spiritual care team is committed to meeting the needs of patients, families and staff.
We understand that your child’s health involves more than medicine alone. That’s why our chaplains are available to assist you in meeting your unique spiritual needs. We honor every person’s journey and spiritual path and do not promote any specific beliefs.
You can request a chaplain if you want someone to:
For urgent or emergent needs during nights and weekends, ask your nurse to page the 24/7 on-call chaplain.
Certified music practitioners (CMPs) play live acoustic music at the bedside of patients who are faced with physical, emotional and spiritual challenges. By focusing on a single patient at a time, the CMP can provide therapeutic music to create a nurturing environment that facilitates healing.
To request a CMP on Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, please call the Spiritual Care Office and leave a message at 720-777-6325.
Our chapel, located on the first floor of the hospital on Anschutz Medical Campus, is open 24 hours a day. The chapel offers a peaceful and comforting ambience and has a labyrinth outlined on the floor for meditative walking, plus a prayer box for written prayers. We also have a tranquil chapel at our new hospital in Colorado Springs.
The Garden of Hope is located outside in front of the hospital in Aurora, and includes inspirational symbols, quotes and a labyrinth.
