Spiritual Care Week Is Oct. 20-26

This year during Spiritual Care Week, the chaplains at Methodist Hospital, Methodist Women’s Hospital and Methodist Fremont Health Medical Center are focusing on creating sacred space in this moment, no matter where we are.

Here are the things we are doing to honor the care of the spirit:

Chaplains will be rounding on the nursing units and other departments offering a Blessing of the Hands for all staff and providers.

Methodist Hospital

  • Chaplains will be rounding each day in units and departments
  • Chaplains will be in the chapel from 8 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 4 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday

Methodist Women’s Hospital

  • Chaplain Dan will be rounding each day in the units and departments
  • Chaplain Dan will be in the chapel from 12 to 1:30 p.m Tuesday and Thursday

Methodist Fremont Health Medical Center

  • Chaplain Scott will be rounding each day in the units and departments

825 Building

  • Chaplain Melissa will be in the 825 Café Thursday, Oct. 24 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Chaplains will be offering a special blessing for any department’s break room. Just call Spiritual Care to request it: NMH and MWH at ext. 4-4016 and Fremont at (402) 290-1408

Chaplains will be blessing public spaces around Methodist Hospital, Methodist Women’s Hospital, Methodist Fremont Health Medical Center and the 825 Building.

We will be offering several opportunities for you to have a moment of rest with calm music and soft lighting. You can talk with a chaplain or sit in silence. This is a sacred space to have a few moments away to rest and renew.
