Spiritual Care

The Spiritual Care Department

The Spiritual Care Department welcomes you to our hospital. Our goal is to provide you with quality, holistic spiritual care which treats the whole person: body, mind and spirit. We believe all human beings deserve to be treated with respect and compassion.

Our professional chaplains are Board Certified and provide spiritual care to patients and families of diverse backgrounds, as well as to those who may not embrace a particular faith or organized religion. Chaplains also provide spiritual care to hospital staff.

A priest chaplain is available to provide the sacraments for “Anointing of the Sick,” “Reconciliation” and the “Last Rites” when requested by Catholic patients.

At St. Joseph Medical Center, Catholic Mass is celebrated Monday – Friday, at 1:30 p.m., and Sunday, at 8 a.m., in the chapel which is located near the Heart Institute (building C) entrance. The Mass is televised on closed circuit TV in patient rooms and on Channel 67. The Chapel of Saint Joseph is open 24/7 for quiet contemplation and prayer, and all are welcome!

To have a chaplain paged, dial “0” for the medical center operator or ask your nurse.
