Glendale Adventist Medical Center's commitment to servanthood
means we make ourselves available to be present in all aspects of
the lives of our patients and their loved ones. The need for
spiritual support is often greatest when individuals are dealing
with illness or injury.
At GAMC, care for an individual's body, mind and
spirit is taken very seriously. Our Chaplains Department
addresses the spiritual needs of our patients and their families.
Our chaplains are present and on call 24 hours a day, seven days
a week. Volunteer chaplains from various religious traditions in our community are also available
to provide spiritual care.

a patient from being either discharged or admitted to the
hospital. When required, our chaplains make motel arrangements,
order medications and ensure that food and clothing needs are
Spiritual care is of the utmost importance when illness turns to
end-of-life issues. The Beyond Loss Bereavement Ministry
helps people through the grieving process after the loss of a
loved one. The ministry conducts nine weekly group sessions,
provides a quarterly newsletter and offers private grief
