Spiritual Care Services
At St. Joseph Medical Center, we believe that the spiritual dimension of each person is a vital part of meeting the healthcare needs of the whole person – body, mind and spirit.
Warmth, compassion and genuine concern for each individual is a hallmark for the Spiritual Healthcare Team at St. Joseph Medical Center. Our Spiritual Care Services are available to all patients, their families and caregivers to provide comfort in times of doubt or need.
Our interfaith approach to spiritual care serves the unique needs of patients, family members and staff of the healthcare community. Spiritual Care Services focus on supporting the deeper spiritual meaning and understanding of suffering, sickness, health and wellness. We offer this ministry through direct service, education and consultation in the compassion and charge of God’s love.
Spiritual support is provided by chaplains and professional individuals who understand and are sensitive to the varied cultural backgrounds of our patients.
