At St. Joseph Health, Spiritual Care is an essential part of our ability to provide holistic care. As a Catholic Healthcare System, we value the diversity of ways in which faith is expressed and we’re committed to making sure the faith, beliefs and values of our patients and families are honored.
Our staff is devoted to becoming informed about each patient’s spirituality and how it influences their health care decisions. By doing so, we can bring additional comfort and an increased sense of well-being to every aspect of care.
A team of caring volunteers.
With permission, our well-trained Spiritual Care volunteers visit our patients and their families to offer emotional and spiritual support to ease the stress of being in the hospital.
Spiritual Care volunteers include:
- Care Partners – These compassionate individuals are assigned to the ER, Day Surgery, and the Med/Surg Units. They are trained to offer special care and attention to patients and families through caring support and even prayer, when it is requested
- Eucharistic Ministers – These exceptional volunteers visit Catholic patients throughout the hospital and Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation locations to offer communion to our Roman Catholic patients
