Spiritual Care

Spiritual Care provides spiritual support and guidance to ill and dying patients, their families and our staff. Spiritual Care caregivers, working closely with physicians and nurses, play an important role in the holistic care that we strive to provide to our patients. They are a resource available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to listen, offer prayer, ease stress, teach coping skills, and help patients and families deal with ethical and end-of-life issues.

Spiritual Care

Bon Secours Health System’s philosophy is to provide holistic care to meet the total needs – body, mind, and spirit – of the person served throughout the continuum of care. The System embraces spiritual care as integral to its mission. A commitment to spiritual care expresses the heart of Bon Secours’ ministry, and it permeates all levels of service and care giving within the system. A holistic and compassionate expression of spiritual care gives tone and texture to all words and actions expressed on behalf of those who are poor, sick and dying. In both formal and informal ways, all co-workers communicate the importance and significance of spiritual care by internalizing the values that characterize this ministry. Spiritual Care leaders and chaplains by virtue of their role, give explicit witness to these values by their compassionate ministerial outreach. They eagerly seek to encourage and promote holistic healing and growth by providing professional spiritual support, guidance and presence.
