  • 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, 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
