Spiritual Health

Welcome to Spiritual Health at Emory Healthcare

Spiritual Health at Emory Healthcare embraces the responsibility for traditional religious care provided by professional health care chaplains. It expands beyond to include spiritual and cultural qualities associated with the whole person's health.

Spiritual Health incorporates evidence-based interventions derived from a wide circle of in-person and online spiritual resource practices such as mindfulness and guided meditation, relaxation response, and chronic illness group work. Spiritual Health is responsible for ensuring that our patients and their family members address emotional and spiritual needs.

Regardless of tradition, everyone is welcome to pray and meditate in our sacred spaces and chapels at the various Emory Healthcare hospital locations.

Our post master’s chaplains prepare themselves through rigorous certifications to provide spiritual health consultations that target symptoms and bring relief to 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 55 full-time staff and 52 part-time staff who serve across the Emory Healthcare system 24/7. We are here to respond. Lean on us.
