Memorial Hermann chaplains contribute to the wellbeing of patients, families and health care professionals by providing care that engages their spiritual, emotional and relational resources.

We are caring professionals who seek to embody the following core values:

  • Empathic – understanding the feelings and thoughts of others
  • Considerate – respecting the autonomy of others
  • Inclusive – embracing all abilities, beliefs, cultures, and identities
  • Mindful – attending to self, others, & the sacred
  • Prepared – educated, trained, & credentialed

Learn more about How We Help »

We care for patients and families facing life-changing illness, injury, and adjustment, as well as those making end-of-life decisions. We care for all people, regardless of their beliefs. If you are separated from loved ones, anxious, wrestling with issues of meaning or purpose, take time to meet with a chaplain. Just ask a staff member to contact us. We would be glad to help you.

Partnering with the whole health care care team, we provide support through empathic listening, ethical consultation, counseling, ritual, and other spiritual resources. Chaplains are available at all major health care facilities throughout our system.

Our Clinical Pastoral Education program, accredited by the Association of Clinical Pastoral Education, Inc., equips clergy, seminarians, and lay people with knowledge and skills to provide spiritual care. It also provides the training required to become a board certified chaplain with the Association of Professional Chaplains.
