Spiritual Care & Chaplains
Being hospitalized and dealing with illness can be an extremely challenging time. Many people find that talking with a chaplain can help during this period. Chaplains in our Spiritual Care Services department provide support to patients, family members, friends and staff members at Longmont United Hospital.
An integral part of our health-care team, chaplains are non-denominational, interfaith, or no faith and are available around the clock to be a caring presence. They offer spiritual and emotional support and listen with openness and understanding. Patients, families and staff are encouraged to call a chaplain when experiencing fear, anger, loneliness, helplessness, anxiety, grief or loss, or when they just need someone to talk to. Chaplains are also available for times of celebration, prayer and rituals.
We are available to support all our patients regardless of beliefs and religious affiliation. Patients do not need to be affiliated with a congregation or faith community to call a chaplain. However if you do belong to a community, we can notify a faith community of your choice to make a visit. Your minister, Rabbi or other spiritual advisor is welcome to visit you or your family members at any time.
Request a visit from a chaplain:
- Phone: 303-651-5280
- Or dial '0' from your room to speak with an operator

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”.
The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died at the age of 33, from complications of an auto-immune disease. During his eight-week hospital stay, his family was impressed by the care and compassion his nurses provided, not only to him but to everyone in the family. They created the DAISY Award in Pat’s memory to recognize those nurses who make a big difference in the lives of so many people.
Our DAISY Award honorees demonstrate Longmont United Hospital’s core values. They also demonstrate excellence through their clinical expertise and compassionate care. They are recognized as role models in our nursing community. Longmont United Hospital is proud to be a DAISY Award partner, and will recognize one of our nurses with this special honor every other month.
Each DAISY Award Honoree will be recognized at a public ceremony in her/his unit, and will receive:
- a beautiful certificate
- a DAISY Award pin
- a hand-carved stone sculpture entitled A Healer’s Touch
In addition, their clinic/unit will celebrate with Cinnabon® cinnamon rolls – a favorite of Patrick’s. The Barnes family asks that whenever nurses smell that wonderful cinnamon aroma, they stop for a moment and think about how special they are.
