St. Francis cares for the whole person: body, mind and spirit. We offer patients and families spiritual support in coping with the crises of hospitalization, life changes and loss.
Our care is rooted in our faith heritage and values. Each person is treated as a unique individual of incomparable worth, with the same right to life and to adequate healthcare as all other people. It is our mission to provide the care we would expect for ourselves and our families.
Our chaplains are professionally trained to care for people from all religions and cultural backgrounds and can help coordinate additional support from clergy and leaders of specific traditions as requested.
Spiritual Care Office
We are available to talk whenever you need us. Ask your nurse to contact us about:
Sacramental ministry and communion
Health Care Directive consultation
Eucharistic volunteers. Local Catholic parish volunteers offer Holy Communion to all Catholic patients
We aim to create an environment that reduces stress and promotes healing. We try to keep it quiet so you can rest, but if you want to move around, you can take the art walk, head to one of the chapels or walk through one of our gardens with water features. There are many locations you can go:
Traditional chapel on the main floor
Multicultural prayer and meditation chapel on the 2nd floor
Meditation garden near the Emergency Department
Atrium garden near the conference center
Legacy Café patio garden
