At The Medical Center, we believe that the mind, body, and spirit work together in the healing process. The ministry of the Pastoral Care department is interfaith. We value all religious and spiritual traditions, cultural backgrounds, and communities as resources for health and healing. We advocate, provide, educate, and support a mind-body-spirit, holistic approach. We serve patients and their families, medical staff, hospital employees, volunteers, and adjunctive community service providers.

We seek to promote holistic service partnerships between the Medical Center and the wider community of spiritual, mental, and physical health care providers.
