About pastoral care

We’re part of your team

Chaplains serve as members of the health care team in a number of capacities including 24 hour ministry within the hospital. They provide support to patients, families, and staff experiencing medical, emotional and spiritual crises.

We’re specially trained

Our chaplains are clinically trained to understand the special needs of hospital patients, their families and hospital staff members. Chaplains serve as members of hospital committees and provide expertise in ethics, spiritual care and education. They have been endorsed by an ecclesiastical body for service in the hospital setting. All staff members are board-certified chaplains or board eligible.
