Spiritual Care & Chaplains
We recognize the central role of spirituality in mental, physical and emotional health. A chaplain acts as an ambassador, companion, concierge, navigator, mediator, etc. Their work highlights the elements of religion that run as an undercurrent to life's daily challenges.
Chaplains serve as hosts for emotional, spiritual, moral support and everything in between. They are assigned to the private chapel in places such as hospitals, military bases, or prisons.
Chaplains are available to assist patients and family members of any faith, including those who have left the path of religion. Our chaplains are here to listen, talk, pray, and to connect you with resources to encourage emotional and spiritual healing. Use the links at left to access online resources recommended by our Spiritual Care staff.
Chaplains are available to provide support, prayer and counsel 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Patients can contact a chaplain:
- Phone: 303-730-5884
- Hospital phone: 64-5884

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 Financial 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”.
