Meet Our Team

A health care chaplain has earned a college degree and been ordained by a religious group. Many chaplains also complete a residency or internship focused on ministering to those who are sick, injured or dying.
 
Chaplains at Deaconess are available 24 hours per day to help patients and families find comfort in times of uncertainty. They play a critical role in patient care by supporting emotional and spiritual needs regardless of a person’s faith tradition.
 
In addition to providing chaplaincy services, Deaconess offers a residency program for Clinical Pastoral Education. A group of resident chaplains spend one year with our specialists to learn the finer details of ministering in a hospital environment. Learn more about the residency program and other educational opportunities.
