Harris Health System is committed to providing pastoral and spiritual counseling to all in need, including patients, their families and medical staff and employees.
The Department of Spiritual Care consists of chaplains from various faith groups helping to foster healing and offer hope and spiritual services to those we serve. Our hospital chaplains are caring listeners who have been trained to help with the special needs of hospital patients and their families. In the case of a patient, we work with his or her healthcare team so that spiritual as well as medical needs will be addressed. Without imposing their beliefs or practices, chaplains will attend to the patient’s or family’s spiritual needs through empathetic listening and compassionate presence. All chaplains respect the individual’s dignity, privacy and maintain confidentiality in pastoral relationships.
Our Pastoral/Spiritual Care staff offers patients and their families the following:
When providing these services, our staff performs a number of activities, including the following:
The Multi-Faith Hospital Chapel
The multi-faith chapel is on the first floor of each hospital. It is open at all times for those needing a place of quiet for prayer, meditation and personal reflection. It is also used for various worship events on weekends and weekdays.
