A commitment to patient-centered care
St. Anthony North Health Campus is proud to be affiliated with Planetree, an internationally recognized non-profit organization that helps guide hospitals on the journey toward patient-centered care and culture. Affiliation with Planetree means that St. Anthony North Hospital is working to meet extensive patient care requirements and is committed to furthering the model of patient centered care throughout our organization.
Planetree’s philosophy is based on a simple premise: care should be organized first and foremost around the needs of patients. To understand those needs Planetree turned to the source. Thousands of focus groups—from bedside to boardroom—with patients, long-term care residents, families and professional caregivers across the globe have borne out their needs and desires for a more personalized, humanized and demystified health care experience.

- Human Interactions

- Architectural Design Conducive to Health and Healing
- Empowering Patients through Information and Education
- The Importance of the Nutritional and Nurturing Aspects of Food

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, we provide the following convenient options.
- 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
