Office for mission & spiritual care

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.

We encourage the effective expression of whole-person care by:

  • Assisting patients and their families to identify and utilize spiritual and religious coping skills before, during and after a medical event.
  • Providing direction, counsel and support to others within the system by calling attention to the spiritual and ethical dimensions of our everyday actions and decisions.
  • Partnering with communities and congregations in our service areas.
  • Conducting educational programs incorporating the latest technology and research into the relationship between spirituality and health.
