Spiritual Care offers patients and families support, prayer and resources for religious needs and emotional issues, including coping with life transitions, suffering, grief/loss, forgiveness and healing. Chaplains and the Social Service Department are also available to assist patients in discussion and completion of Advanced Directives for Health Care.
