Spiritual Care Services

Spiritual care services provides spiritual support

What Do Chaplains Do?

  • Provide emotional and spiritual support.
  • Support patients through care planning and decision making.
  • Help patients to process profound spiritual issues such as suffering, loss, guilt, trust, hope, etc.
  • Offer prayer, blessings, anointing's, baptisms, religious sacraments, and rituals.
  • Serve as liaison with community clergy and faith communities. Provide end-of-life support, grief, and bereavement care.

We serve all patients regardless of gender, religion (faith or no faith), age, ethnicity,
language, sexual orientation, or legal status.

Our chaplains serve all faith traditions and can help patients and their families access the
resources they need to carry out their own spiritual or religious traditions. If desired, we
can assist in contacting your religious/spiritual community. Devotional materials,
sacraments, priest visits, and other resources may be made available upon request.

You can request a chaplain by contacting Pastoral Care at 831-759-3241 or 831-759-
3025 at any time. Patients can also ask any member of their medical team to request a
chaplain visit.
