Pastoral and Spiritual Care at Hasbro Children's Hospital

Spiritual Care Services

As part of Lifespan’s commitment to providing care that recognizes the whole person, our spiritual care department is committed to meeting the spiritual and emotional needs of our patients, family, and staff. The community we serve includes a diversity of religions, cultures, and spiritual practices, as well as those who don’t identify with any spiritual or religious tradition. As a result, our staff takes a multi-faith approach to spiritual care, emphasizing the individual needs of those we serve.
