Chaplaincy Services

Spiritual Healthcare at KGH involves providing compassionate patient and family centred care, including services for KGH staff. Spiritual Healthcare services recognize the needs of the whole person: body, mind, and spirit. Spiritual and Religious Care includes all that brings you meaning.

As a patient, family member or staff person you may be facing difficult decisions, experiencing significant changes or living with a life-threatening illness. You may feel overwhelmed, anxious, even weary of heart, and would welcome companionship and a listening ear.

Spiritual Health Chaplains are professionally educated and clinically trained to serve people of all walks of life and can be an important support for you. Spiritual Health Chaplains listen sensitively without judgement, and are guided by your wishes, concerns, and values to offer appropriate support and care.
