Our chaplains at Littleton Adventist Hospital work closely with other department personnel in an effort to meet the spiritual needs of the patients both within the hospital and identified patients within the community. Staff members initiate contact with patients in all areas and consult with patients, families, significant others and hospital staff as referred and requested.
The chaplains also provide consultation to managers regarding employee problems, team development and stress debriefing after critical incidents. Services are provided to individual employees and family members, including assessment of personal problems, counseling and referrals to treatment providers and community resources.
Spiritual care, comfort, encouragement and counsel are available to all persons in the hospital and other service areas, regardless of religious or non-religious beliefs. In addition, spiritual care is provided through the denominational ministry of the person's choice and at their request.
