Spiritual Care for Patients

At UH Elyria Medical Center, spiritual care is an important part of the healing process. Our chaplains are specially trained to help patients draw on the inner resources that foster hope and promote healing. It is the goal of the spiritual care department to engage the spiritual dimension of people, their beliefs, culture, values and religious practices for healing, well-being and growth. These basic foundations give meaning to life's joys and struggles, serve as a bright light guiding us on our individual paths and connect us with supportive communities.

Spiritual Care Department services are available to patients, families and staff.

Pastoral Services

The spiritual care department initiated the Community Outreach Committee to help connect employees with needs of the community. Our team also distributes Bibles, which are available upon request.

As part of the spiritual care department, Chaplains are available to help during a variety of times, including:

  • When you are anxious
  • When you receive upsetting news
  • When you are facing difficult decisions
  • When you are exploring a religious question
  • When you are seeking the comfort of religious rituals and sacraments
  • When you are wrestling with meaning of your illness
  • When you are sad over a loss
  • When you need someone who listens
  • When you are seeking a prayer partner or spiritual guidance
