Patient & Family Needs
Chaplains respond to spiritual needs with sensitivity to culture, ethnicity and religious diversity. Belief systems and denominational requests are always honored. Community clergy and religious leaders may be contacted to help with special requests. Our chaplains are here for those who seek spiritual help in times of crisis. They are experienced in helping people talk about, understand and process their feelings. Emotional and spiritual support is available to those who are:
Coping with a difficult diagnosis
Making end-of-life decisions
Coping with a long-term or chronic illness
Facing the death of a loved one
Seeking prayer support
Feeling abandoned by God
Facing a surgery
Looking for someone to listen to a problem
