Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care provides spiritual support and guidance to ill and dying patients, their families and our staff. Pastoral 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.

Pastoral 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 pastoral care as integral to its mission. A commitment to pastoral 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 pastoral 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 pastoral care by internalizing the values that characterize this ministry. Pastoral 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 pastoral support, guidance and presence.
