Spartanburg Regional recognizes that the physical realm is only one aspect of healthcare, and that the emotional and spiritual aspects of life contribute to the healing for which the health system is known.
The primary ministry of our hospital chaplains is to support patients and their family members as they are confronted with emotional and spiritual crisis due to a physical illness. Our chaplains serve in all areas of the hospital, the emergency rooms, in the waiting rooms, in patient rooms and in classrooms. SHRS chaplains are there to answer the call of any patient, family member or staff person who asks to see a chaplain, around the clock, seven days a week, even on holidays.
We recognize that our patients come from all walks of life and bring with them a variety of cultural and religious backgrounds. We care for each individual, sensitive to the patient’s personal beliefs and their spiritual resources. We see our ministry as assisting individuals and families to make greater use of their spiritual resources and religious faith.
