Hospital Services

Spiritual Care Services

Being hospitalized and dealing with illness can be an extremely challenging time. Many people find that talking with a chaplain can help during this period. Chaplains in our Spiritual Care Services department provide support to patients, family members, friends and staff members at Longmont United Hospital.

An integral part of our health-care team, chaplains are non-denominational, interfaith, or no faith and are available around the clock to be a caring presence. They offer spiritual and emotional support and listen with openness and understanding. Patients, families and staff are encouraged to call a chaplain when experiencing fear, anger, loneliness, helplessness, anxiety, grief or loss, or when they just need someone to talk to. Chaplains are also available for times of celebration, prayer and rituals.

We are available to support all our patients regardless of beliefs and religious affiliation. Patients do not need to be affiliated with a congregation or faith community to call a chaplain. However if you do belong to a community, we can notify a faith community of your choice to make a visit. Your minister, Rabbi or other spiritual advisor is welcome to visit you or your family members at any time.

Spiritual Care Services is here to compassionately accompany you with:

  • Pastoral care in times of transition, crisis, grief, or loss.
  • Conversation about hope, gratitude, fear, connection and meaning related to your stay in the hospital.
  • To seek sources of strength within your own religious tradition, culture or belief system.
  • Payers, blessings and religious rituals.
  • Connecting you to your faith tradition through our staff, volunteers and referrals to community resources.
