WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST.
A HELPING HAND WITH EMOTIONAL SUPPORT
Island Health’s chaplains are trained to provide emotional and spiritual support in the specialized healthcare environment. Whether you have a medical crisis, or just want support for an ongoing recovery, our chaplains will respectfully listen to you and your beloved without judgment. When requested, we can engage in religious or ethical topics with you confidentially, but we can also celebrate your joys with you. We are happy to provide whatever form of general emotional support you are comfortable with.
SUPPORT IS JUST A PHONE CALL AWAY
Each of our volunteer chaplains serve as “first-responders” on-call in medical or pastoral crises. We also conduct pastoral care ’rounds’— visiting patients and nurses in the hospital. If necessary, we can make referrals to appropriate groups or agencies when special support services are needed. The chaplain-on-call is available upon patient request. Patients, families or visitors need only to ask a nurse to contact the volunteer chaplain, or call 360.661.4733.
A QUIET PLACE FOR REFLECTION
If you are looking for a quiet place for reflection, prayer or meditation, we encourage you to use our chapel. This is a public space for multi-faith visitors who seek tranquility and peace. Our chapel is located near Central Registration, across from the Birth Center.
