Spiritual Care Services

Our Mission:

We, St. Joseph's Health and Trinity Health, serve together in the spirit of the Gospel as a compassionate and transforming healing presence within our communities.

Our Vision:

St. Joseph's will be a leading regional health system of choice serving and providing value to the communities of Syracuse and Central New York

PHILOSOPHY OF CARE:

Spiritual Care is an integral component of holistic care, which includes care of the mind, body and spirit. We, as spiritual caregivers, fulfill our Mission and Vision when:

  • We address the spiritual and emotional needs of patients, family members, staff and volunteers in the entire St. Joseph’s Hospital Network regardless of religious denomination or faith tradition.
  • We care for others in a spirit of prayer and discernment.
  • We minister as a team of Chaplains, Eucharistic Ministers and Spiritual Care Volunteers.
  • We enhance our ministry by fostering professional relationships with all members of the patient care team.
  • We give priority to referrals for spiritual care generated from patients, families, staff and volunteers.
  • We promote our personal and professional growth through education and evaluation.
  • We extend our presence and influence throughout the Network by serving on various committees.
