Spiritual support and comfort for all faith groups.
When faced with times of illness, crisis, or stress, people often draw closer to their spiritual side. A chaplain has a sacred opportunity to minister to people during these times. With this responsibility, our pastoral care endeavors to:
- Respect the dignity and privacy of the patient, family and staff.
- Be caring listeners who have been trained to help with the special needs of a patient, family member or staff.
- Work with the healthcare team so that the spiritual needs, as well as medical needs are addressed.
The Oncology Chaplain of Resource Services offers opportunities to patients and family members to discover spiritual meaning, belonging and hope through individual consultation, support groups and the music expression program, Rhythms Drum Circle.
