Spiritual Health Services
Believing that life is sacred, we provide spiritual care to patients, residents, and loved ones within Heartland Health and our community. Our ministry is integrated with the healthcare team as we engage in ongoing education with clergy, staff and lay persons in the practice of spiritual healthcare. We are accredited by the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education to offer training. To apply call 1-800-447-2487.
Chaplains respond to referrals for spiritual support from patients, clergy, loved ones, family members, doctors, nurses and employees. Chaplains respond to all traumas and are present at the bedside of persons who are dying. Chaplains offer consultation on ethical decision-making including organ/tissue donation and Advanced Directives.
Spiritual Health Services encourages visitation by the patients' own ministers. If a minister is not available, or if there are needs that cannot be met by a chaplain, the hospital chaplains gladly respond to your requests. There is a chaplain on-call 24 hours a day. You may ask to visit with a chaplain at any time by calling (816) 271-6040.
The Pastoral Visitor Program offers persons an opportunity to assist chaplains in providing pastoral care. To apply, call (816) 271-6040 or 800-447-2487.
