Spiritual care

Our professionally trained chaplains are available to provide emotional and spiritual support and honor what matters most to you through compassionate listening, crisis intervention, grief and bereavement resources, and patient advocacy. Chaplains provide respectful spiritual and emotional care to people of all faiths, beliefs, and values. Chaplains are available daily from 7:30 a.m to 4 p.m. 

To request a chaplain visit, speak with the bedside nurse or call the Spiritual Care office 253-985-6452.

Interfaith chapel

The chapel is located on the first floor. This space is set aside for quiet reflection and prayer for patients, visitors and staff of all faiths. It is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There is a Prayer Request Book, where you are invited to ask for prayers on behalf of yourself or a loved one.

Reflection garden

Hospitals have used natural landscaping, gardens and fresh air as components of healing for centuries. Located behind the chapel, the Reflection Garden at St. Clare continues with this tradition, offering patients, visitors and staff a natural and beautiful setting for quiet conversation, contemplation, healing and prayer.

Bereavement Support Program

The Bereavement Support Program has been established to assist those family members who have lost a loved one while they were a patient at our Virginia Mason Franciscan Health hospitals. Learn more about the program and find support group offerings.

The web pages are easy to access and navigate. They can display photos and information, and allow visitors who have been invited to leave messages for the patient.
