    Spirituality is integral to healing. We understand the essential nature of this truth and extend the healing ministry of Christ to those who are ill. In this same spirit, we also seek to nurture the health of the people in our communities throughout the region. We at St. Catherine Hospital recognize that spirituality is multi-faceted, involving a person's beliefs and core values. Providing whole person care recognizes the unity of body, mind, and spirit.

    When a person is ill or facing a health challenge, it is common to rely on his or her interior strengths to cope and heal. The Spiritual Care team provides a full range of services to support this process. They address situations from birth, through sickness or emergencies, to terminal illness and death.

    They are available for such services as:

    • Consultation regarding spiritual distress
    • General support
    • Crisis Intervention
    • Ethical consultation and decision making
    • End of life care
    • Prayer
    • Clergy or sacramental referrals
    • Facilitating help in time of need

    Eucharistic ministers from St. Mary and St. Dominic Parishes provide communion when requested. Local clergy are encouraged and supported in the visitation of their congregants.

    Prayer Request boxes are located throughout the hospital for patients and staff to place their prayer requests. Perpetual adoration (24 hour prayer) is ongoing in the Chapel as a ministry to our patients, their families and friends, and our staff.

    It is the goal of the Spiritual Care team to provide spiritual ministry to all. We support St. Catherine Hospital's philosophy of total patient care.

  • PIVO Needle-Free Blood Draw for Inpatients

    400,000 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”.
