Spiritual Care Services

Our interfaith chaplains provide personal support, spiritual care and guidance, and liaison with local religious communities.
 
Patients, their loved ones, and the staff who care for them have spiritual needs and can benefit from attention to the thoughts, feelings, and concerns that go along with serious illness or injury. Even people who do not think of themselves as religious often find that they feel strengthened and comforted by personal attention to their spiritual needs. Simply talking with someone who can understand the burdens of care can bring relief.
 
People who have an active spiritual life or religious practice frequently find support in the practices that are familiar to them. Prayer, meditation, reading of scripture, sacraments, and other ritual observances can provide comfort, a sense of meaning, and relief from worries associated with the experience of illness.
 
The hospital provides a quiet and comfortable prayer and meditation room where staff, patients, and loved ones may gather to renew inner resources, give thanks, pray, grieve and reflect. It can also be used for religious rituals such as baptisms and memorial services. The prayer and meditation room is located just off the Main Lobby and is open to all.
