Feeding our spirit is as vital as feeding our body. As health care providers, we fully embrace the spiritual dimension of life as a key ingredient of our health and well-being and are dedicated to providing spiritual care services to our patients, families and care givers. Spirituality can be a valuable resource in times of crisis, helping us adjust to life transitions and cope with illness, trauma and loss.
At Dignity Health, professional chaplains are available to help individuals and families draw upon their religious traditions, faith, or sense of life purpose in facing crisis situations. Spiritual care givers may also be called upon to assist with issues of fear, loneliness or hopelessness.
Our chaplains bring comfort and compassion and promote healing as they accompany individuals and families in their journey through illness, and, at times, through death. And through education and training, our Clinical Pastoral Education program further advances the delivery of excellent spiritual care.
