For many patients and families, illness, injury and hospitalization are times of loss, transition and reflection on life's deeper meaning. As a patient or a family member you may be apprehensive about what lies ahead.
The staff of St. Anthony Hospital is dedicated to supporting you and your family physically, emotionally and spiritually during your hospital stay. We are here for you in times of difficulty, discouragement or loneliness, and in times of joy with the celebration of the blessing of birth, successful surgery and answered prayer.
Our hospital chaplains, chaplain residents and interns provide emotional and spiritual support to patients, families and staff from a diversity of religious beliefs and practices, with concern for confidentiality. Our chaplains are trained Spiritual Care providers from a diversity of faith traditions, all of whom share respect for personal belief and a value for honoring spirituality with a non-judgmental presence. They are available for crisis counseling, to support chronically ill patients, these in recovery and rehabilitation and those patients and families facing death or needing bereavement care.
Chaplains including our Roman Catholic Priest chaplain are available by request and Catholic Eucharistic Ministers are available daily to bring Holy Communion to Catholic patients. For patients and guests desiring to be connected to their own spiritual care advisor, our chaplaincy staff can arrange this through a referral to community religious leaders.
We are here for you 24/7 , to serve you, and be by your side during your stay. To speak with or leave a message for a Spiritual Care team member, please dial "531760" if in the hospital or from outside the hospital, call 720-321-1760. You may always ask your nurse to contact us, as well.
