Spirituality and Wellness at North Shore Medical Center
Pastoral Care Services at North Shore Medical Center include chaplains trained in interfaith ministry, a Catholic priest, a Jewish rabbi, a Catholic nun and a Protestant minister. Eucharistic ministers and local clergy from area parishes, congregations and synagogues also assist the staff. The pastoral team supports patients and their families within the faith community or spiritual philosophy that sustains them (whether religious or secular.) All discussions with our pastoral care team are confidential.
