Spiritual wellness looks at health from a holistic lens. Spiritual wellness includes both our religious and non-religious set of beliefs that is intangible and it involves our values and personal practices that embody a sense of wholeness and peace from within.

Looking for a quiet space to relax and unwind? Why not visit one of KHSC's staff wellness centres. Both the Oasis Room at the HDH site (Jeanne Mance 3, Room 315) and the Wellness Centre at the KGH site (Connell 8) are open to staff 24 hours a day.

KHSC staff can check out the Staff Courtyard off of the Dietary 1 corridor at the KGH site to get some fresh air and re-energize. The courtyard is open May through October.

Meditation clears the mind by reconnecting you with your self so that you can live in the moment. The Chapel at the KGH site is open for individual silent meditation practice 24/7.

Spiritual Health services are available to patients, family members, and hospital staff. Chaplains offer non-judgemental support to those seeking assistance and comfort. Spiritual Health Practitioners or Roman Catholic Chaplains can assist people in using or finding spiritual resources that are meaningful.

Registered Massage Therapy for Staff has resumed.

KHSC values staff health and wellness recognizing the importance of a holistic approach that supports physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
