Edward-Elmhurst Health Spiritual Care

The Spiritual Care Department at Edward-Elmhurst Health represents a wide range of faith traditions and belief systems. Our chaplains are specifically trained to provide ministry in a healthcare setting. Our team offers inclusive spiritual, religious and emotional support that recognizes each person’s unique and valuable life story. During difficult times, we partner with patients and families as they identify coping resources and explore what gives their lives meaning and purpose.

  • Hopes, values, fears, meaning and purpose
