Caring for One's Spirit

Adventist Health Glendale'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 Adventist Health Glendale, 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.

ASSIST Program

Caring for one's spirit extends beyond an individual's stay in our hospital. Our Assistance Service and Support in Short Term Care (ASSIST) program takes care of urgent needs that might keep 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 secured.

Beyond Loss Bereavement Ministry

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 counseling.
