Emory Center for Pastoral Services

Patients and families entering the hospital and clinics are understandably anxious as they embark on a journey toward healing and health while encountering the unknowns of the landscape. They often face crises of faith and understanding as they travel the unfamiliar road. Spiritual care for this journey is the mission of the Emory Center for Pastoral Services. Caring patient and family centered accompaniment for the journey is the goal of this inter-faith, compassionately trained service arm of Emory Healthcare.

The interdisciplinary staff is the guide toward health. They share the stress of the patients as they are faced with the hope of making a difference colliding with the reality of limits.

To meet these care givers at the point of their need, the Emory Center of Pastoral Service provides a unique Staff Support program to the entities of Emory Healthcare and its affiliates: Emory University Hospital, Emory University Hospital Midtown, Emory University Orthopedic & Spine Hospital, Select Specialty Hospital, Wesley Woods Center, Wesley Homes, Inc., Winship Cancer Clinic, Vista Care Hospice, Saint Joseph’s Hospital, Emory John’s Creek Hospital, and Southern Regional Medical Center.

This patient, family and staff spiritually based care is carried out while engaging in an ACPE accredited Clinical Pastoral Education program, contributing to the development of the Spiritual Care field through our engagement in qualitative Pastoral Research and leading the Ethical Consultation process for the Healthcare system. In recognition that we provide our support in a much larger context of community based pastoral care, ECPS also provides Clergy Support to a variety of faith groups through Emory Clergy Care.
