Memorial Hermann recognizes that superior care involves treating the whole patient - body, mind and spirit. Upon request, professional chaplains are available at each hospital to offer both emotional and spiritual support to cancer patients and their families.
As an emotional and spiritual resource, hospital chaplains understand the personal concerns of cancer patients and help patients cope with the emotional stresses they are experiencing. Chaplaincy services include listening to patients, answering questions and offering short-term counseling, scripture and prayer, as requested. These services provide comfort to patients and their families during a difficult time.
