Dedicated to Creating Healthier Communities
We’re here to serve as your partner in health, offering a wide variety of services that care for the mind, body and spirit.
When illness or injury strikes, it affects more than our physical well-being. It often affects all of who we are — our bodies, minds, emotions, relationships and our spirituality. Faith and hope can have a tremendous influence on coping with illness.
At Virginia Mason Franciscan Health, we believe that providing good health care includes caring for the spirit and emotions. Our Spiritual Care staff serves you and your family in your time of need, whether you’re dealing with an illness or coping with grief or loss. Our first priority is to comfort and provide spiritual and emotional support.
