Spiritual Care at Cowichan District Hospital

The Spiritual Health Practitioner is available to meet with patients, their loved ones, staff and volunteers at the hospital, during the office hours. Meetings can be arranged directly by phone or email or, for patients and loved ones, by asking another member of the health care team to make a referral on their behalf.

Sacred Space

All are welcome to make use of the Sacred Space for nurturing their spiritual health. The Sacred Space is a quiet room located near the main entrance of the hospital, opposite the reception booth. If the door is closed, the room may be in use: please knock gently. If the door is locked, please contact Security or reception staff. The room is open at all times.
