Spiritual Care at Spaulding Boston (SRH)

Spaulding Chaplains are dedicated to providing culturally-sensitive spiritual care to people of all faiths, traditions and beliefs. They serve as compassionate spiritual companions to you, your family and sometimes our staff. They collaborate with clinicians, therapists and you to further expand your healing process, making it more personal and reminding us all of what’s most important.

Having Chaplains on our staff allows us to focus on you as a whole person. They help us understand your needs and serve your emotional and spiritual well being as we help you rehabilitate your body. And they’re here to help you deal with the challenges of therapy and continuing medical care, especially when living with or recovering from an illness or a newly-diagnosed condition. Chaplains collaborate with other members of the clinical team in promoting an integrative healing process. Offering spiritual guidance is yet another way we’re committed to helping you return to your highest levels of functionality and independence.
