Spiritual Care at Lifespan Hospitals

Spiritual Care at Lifespan Hospitals

As part of Lifespan’s commitment to providing care that recognizes the whole person, our spiritual care department is committed to meeting the spiritual and emotional needs of our patients, family, and staff. The community we serve includes a diversity of religions, cultures, and spiritual practices, as well as those who don’t identify with any spiritual or religious tradition. As a result, our staff takes a multi-faith approach to spiritual care, emphasizing the individual needs of those we serve. 

Our chaplains are integrated into the care team, visiting patients and families at the bedside at Rhode Island Hospital and its Hasbro Children’s Hospital, The Miriam Hospital, and Newport Hospital. They also see patients on an outpatient basis at the Lifespan Cancer Institute at Rhode Island Hospital, The Miriam Hospital, and Newport Hospital.
