Virginia Mason Medical Center: Other Services

Center of Excellence at Virginia Mason

A Center of Excellence is a medical program that provides the most expert and highest level of patient care. They treat complex medical conditions while meeting the most rigorous quality, safety, and patient experience standards to provide successful results. These programs were designed to improve patient access to world-class care across the country. Many of our Centers of Excellence patients are out of state and don’t have access to exceptional quality care closer to home. Learn more.

Spiritual care services

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 206-583-6463.

The Bereavement Support Program has been established to assist those family members who have lost a loved one while they were a patient at Virginia Mason Medical Center. Family members who choose to participate will receive monthly correspondence, for a period of approximately one year, focusing on topics related to the grieving and healing process.
