Spiritual and Religious Care

What kind of religious services are offered?

Spiritual care professionals (also called Chaplains) are trained in working with persons from all world-views and faith expressions to help keep feelings of hope, meaning and purpose in life strong. Chaplains offer personal consultation and unit specific services. They also provide crisis support and intervention, and end-of-life and bereavement care. Cognitive and physical support unit chaplains are available, along with 24/7 emergency on-call coverage.

Please consult with your nurse to make a referral for all spiritual and religious care needs.
