Spiritual Care

Providence Health & Services is a Catholic not-for-profit organization with a deep tradition of providing quality, faith-based care. Providence respects all faiths, and believes faith is important to healing.

Our interfaith approach to spiritual care allows chaplains to serve the unique needs of patients, family members and our staffs. The chaplains focus on supporting the deeper spiritual meaning and understanding of suffering and sickness, health and wellness. We offer this ministry through direct service, education and consultation in the compassion and charge of God's love.

Our chaplains are professionally trained women and men who work throughout our hospitals and work with healthcare teams to serve our patients. The Spiritual Care Department also includes trained volunteers and chaplaincy students.
