Spiritual Care & Chaplains
We believe every health care journey begins with a dedication to healing body, mind and spirit. Our faith-based mission and approach to holistic health is essential to a person’s overall wellness. We respect and abide by the unique spiritual needs of everyone who chooses Centura Health, regardless of faith or belief.
Chaplains are health care professionals who bring all the resources of spiritual and pastoral care to help our patients, their families and friends better cope with the challenges of a hospital visit. Our chaplains are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide spiritual guidance through prayer, ritual, sacrament, or help our patients connect to their religious communities.
Patients, their family members or friends can request a visit from a chaplain. They are also available to assist clergy or other pastors coming to visit their congregants.
To contact a member of our spiritual care or pastoral care team during your hospital stay:
- In-person: Ask the attending nurse to page the chaplain on call
- By phone: Call the hospital operator and ask for the chaplain on-call to be paged

PIVO Needle-Free Blood Draw for Inpatients400,000 Needlesticks Avoided for Our Patients
Centura Health has enhanced the healthcare journey of inpatients by utilizing PIVO technology for blood collection throughout our entire ecosystem of health care locations. This innovative technology allows us to fulfill our promise to deliver compassionate and whole person care. “We are proud to be the first and only health system in Colorado and Kansas and one of the first in the country to change how we draw blood to reduce unnecessary pain, risk and anxiety for our inpatients.” Shauna Gulley, MD, SVP and Chief Clinical Officer.
Since the implementation of the new technology, we have eliminated over 400,000 needlesticks for patients and reduced the risk of accidental needlesticks for our healthcare providers. “PIVO reduces the total number of needles that we are using in healthcare right now, which is a safety benefit for our staff,” shared Susan Caneva, MSN, RN and Chief Nursing Officer.
Over 5,000 nurses across 16 Centura hospitals now collect blood samples from an indwelling peripheral IV line, enabling a high-quality blood draw. Our nursing staff is empowered to bundle care with early morning labs to reduce patient’s sleep disruption and advance needed healing. This change has improved patient satisfaction ratings surrounding “Courtesy of Person Who Took Blood” and “Courtesy of Person Who Started IV”.
Checking on a Patient
From stitches to surgery, when someone you love is in the hospital, you want to know the news. We'll gladly help you get connected. Contact the main hospital and our receptionist will transfer you to the appropriate place.
Getting specific medical information
We want to keep you informed as much as possible. The Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule protects the privacy of personal health information so caregivers are limited in the information they can provide, unless the patient, the patient's legal guardian or legal representative has authorized us to provide specific information. To ensure proper patient confidentiality prior to sharing any updates, each patient will receive a privacy code, which they can share with their family and friends. This allows the hospital to know the patient has authorized us to share their information with those who have the code. In order to protect the patient, hospital staff will NOT share any information about a patient's care without the privacy code.
We know it can be frustrating when you can't get the medical information you'd like to have, so we encourage you and your family to talk about this prior to coming to the hospital in order to understand and streamline communication.
