Statement of Purpose
The Office for Mission and Spiritual Care symbolizes the mission and ministry of our sponsors in order to support the integration of Advocate's faith-based Mission, Values, and Philosophy into all aspects of the delivery of health care.
To encourage the effective expression of whole person care...
- We assist patients and their families to identify and utilize spiritual and religious coping skills before, during and after a medical event;
- We provide direction, counsel and support to others within the system by calling attention to the spiritual and ethical dimensions of our everyday actions and decisions;
- We partner with communities and congregations in our service areas; and
- We conduct educational programs incorporating the latest technology and research into the relationship between spirituality and health.
