Spiritual Care Services

The spiritual care team is an integral part of the health care team at Windsor Regional Hospital.

Clinically trained Chaplains offer emotional and spiritual support, crisis intervention, counselling, presence, supportive listening, encouragement and celebration to bring comfort to patients, families and staff during their stay in the hospital. Religious care is offered through prayer and ritual. In addition, chaplains can help connect individuals with community faith groups. Chaplains also provide religious care through prayer, perinatal memorial services and rituals.
