Spiritual Care at Victoria General Hospital

The Victoria General Hospital Spiritual Health Practitioner is specially trained to help people discover and make use of the spiritual health resources available to them, both within themselves and in the community.

Respecting the various ways people look at Spiritual Health, which may or may not include religion, the Spiritual Health Practitioner will visit patients to offer spiritual support, if requested by the patient, the patient's family or by staff. The Spiritual Health Practitioner also offers spiritual support to staff and their families.
