Pastoral and Spiritual Care at St. Joseph Medical Center


Our Spiritual Care team understands healing can sometimes need presence and conversation, as much as medical procedures. We honor everyone’s path toward wellness and healing, no matter their religious or spiritual beliefs. We support all through difficulty, grief and loss. Spiritual Care services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The professional chaplains in our Spiritual Care program have all completed comprehensive training and are constantly furthering their knowledge to meet the special demands they face in a hospital setting.
