Spiritual Health at Emory Healthcare, formerly known as the Emory Center for Pastoral Services, embraces the traditional religious care provided by professional health care chaplains, but also expands beyond to include spiritual and cultural qualities associated with whole person health. Rituals and prayers from particular faith traditions and active listening continue to be important functions in responding to distress. Spiritual Health also incorporates evidence-based interventions derived from a wide circle of spiritual practices such as mindfulness and guided meditation, relaxation response, chronic illness group work and various music and art therapies. Our Emory chaplains prepare themselves through rigorous certifications to provide spiritual health consultations that target symptoms and bring relief to affective behaviors that impede health. Our role on the interdisciplinary team is critically integrated with improved health outcomes whether a person survives an illness or achieves a peaceful death.
Our Spiritual Health team includes 46 full time staff and 52 part time staff who serve across the EHC system 24/7. We are here to respond. Lean on us.
