Spiritual Care

The Pastoral Care Team

The services of Holy Family Memorial's Pastoral Care Staff are available to all those receiving care within HFM's health network and their loved ones. Providing spiritual care and emotional support in times of illness, suffering and crisis, the Pastoral Care staff helps people participate more fully in the healing love of Jesus. They minister with compassionate concern, respectful of the dignity of each person and aware of the value of total health care.

The Pastoral Care staff consists of both men and women who are trained and certified as chaplains. They work together with community clergy, physicians, nurses and all health care employees to meet the needs of patients and their significant others.

A member of Holy Family Memorial's Pastoral Care staff is available on a 24-hour basis, seven days a week. Please call the Pastoral Care Office at 320-2347 or 320-2317 during regular business hours (M-F); on week-ends or after hours, please call the main switchboard and ask for the on call Chaplain.
