Edward-Elmhurst Health Spiritual Care

Navigating experiences of stress, illness or crisis can be a challenging journey.  Exploring our spirituality, those beliefs and values that offer a sense of meaning and purpose, can help navigate challenges and forge new paths toward healing and wellbeing. 

The clinically trained chaplains of Edward-Elmhurst Health’s Spiritual Care Department provide confidential, inclusive spiritual, religious, and emotional support that respects each person’s unique and valuable life story. As you navigate changes and challenges let us partner with you and your loved ones to explore sources of meaning and purpose and identify resources for coping and healing.
