Spiritual Health

Our Spiritual Care staff is specially trained to assist persons of all faiths as well as those with no faith tradition who want spiritual support in coping with illness, loss or trauma. Our intent is to provide you and your family members receive supportive spiritual care that will help bring healing and wholeness in your life.

Due to construction, the chapel is currently located in the atrium near entrance 3. If you are a patient wishing to visit the chapel, for safety reasons, please speak with your nurse about your options.
