The challenge of illness can be frightening, but it can also become a vehicle of profound healing and awakening — physically, emotionally and spiritually. We are here for you, whether to hold your hand or celebrate your healing. Alta Bates Summit Medical Center chaplains are trained to compassionately attend to the spiritual and emotional needs as well as those of you and your loved ones.
We offer care and support for people of all religious affiliations as well as those who follow no faith tradition. A chaplain is assigned to each inpatient clinical unit at the medical center and our services are provided free of charge.
