Spiritual Care for Patients & Families

At Swedish, we recognize that meeting our patients’ spiritual and religious needs is an important part of caring for the whole person. We understand that healing involves body, mind and soul.

The Spiritual Care Department is committed to providing spiritual care to patients and their families while considering the diversity of spiritual and religious expressions. Spiritual care is available to people of all faiths as well as those of no particular affiliation 24 hours a day, every day.

Our professionally-trained chaplains, representing a broad array of religious faiths and cultural backgrounds, function as an integral part of the medical team. They are available to offer supportive companionship and care for you on your journey at Swedish from diagnosis to healing, from birth to death.

If you need spiritual care services, please call the hospital operator at 206-386-6000 and ask to be connected to a chaplain.
