Center for Spirituality and Health - Chaplaincy Services in Healthcare & at the Worplace
"Institutions that ignore the spiritual dimension of a person in their mission statement or daily provision of care increase their risk of becoming only biological where dysfunctional human parts are repaired or replaced."*

The Center for Spirituality & Health provides high-quality professional chaplaincy services in these arenas:

Healthcare                                   Workplace

Training & Consulting            Life Transitions
Spirituality demonstrates that we are not just physical bodies. Our spirituality is at the core of our humanity and our spiritual life needs to be nurtured, even if we are not religious or do not belong to a religious community: 
  • People find that their spirituality assists them to maintain health and cope with illnesses and trauma

  • Faith is key to finding significance and joy at work in the midst of frustrations and burdens   

  • Our spirituality shapes and informs our value system and our leadership effectiveness

  • Life transitions and losses lead to spiritual questions such as "Why do I exist? Why is this happening? What will be the impact of my decisions for my loved ones? What will happen after I die? "
Our Board Certified chaplains respond to these concerns in unique ways, drawing on the historic traditions of spirituality that contribute to the healing of body, mind, heart, and soul.
