Spiritual & Pastoral Care

At USA Health, it is our goal to provide holistic care to our patients, which is why the Spiritual Care Department provides religious, spiritual and emotional support. Our clinically trained chaplains are grounded in a variety of faith traditions and trained to be respectful of those of all faiths, as well as those who may not be comfortable with religious beliefs.

Chaplains meet their care recipients where they are on their journeys and companion them along the way. If someone is experiencing sadness, loneliness, helplessness, anxiety, grief, fear, or has cause for celebration, chaplains are here to offer support. Chaplains also assist in the resolution of conflicts or communication issues, as there often are difficult decisions to make involving next steps and end-of-life. Chaplains are available to provide prayer, communion, anointing, and other observances and rituals.

An Interfaith Chapel for reflection and soothing comfort is located on the first floor of University Hospital.
