People Want Spiritual Care Included in Their Health Care

Patient visits by professional chaplains during the course of the hospital stay lead to increased scores on the patient satisfaction surveys HCAHPS and Press Ganey, and can have positive fiscal consequences.

Research studies show that the majority of Americans say that spirituality, in some form, should be an important consideration in their health care. Yet 72% of patients in a study note their spiritual needs were minimally met or not supported. With this in mind, we’ve developed several cost-effective, technology-based programs and services to extend the reach of professional health care chaplaincy in inpatient, outpatient, hospice, long-term care, and home settings.
