Spiritual Care

Spiritual Care clinicians are here to support BCH’s patients, families and staff as part of the interdisciplinary health care team. BCH chaplains are integral to a whole person approach to health. Chaplains incorporate evidence-based assessments and interventions drawn from a wide circle of spiritual practices such as mindfulness, guided meditation, deep listening, prayer, wellness coaching and many other practices that support health and healing. BCH chaplains represent a diversity of spiritual and religious traditions and are trained to provide respectful care to people of all cultural and religious (or non-religious) backgrounds. Chaplains are available to listen and support patients and families as they make the journey through illness, health and treatment decisions.

Based on a patient’s and family’s particular needs, chaplains provide:

  • Culturally sensitive care and advocacy
  • Advance directive planning
  • Ethical decision-making
  • Palliative care coordination
  • Grief support
  • Spiritual practices and wellness coaching
  • Referrals to religious and spiritual groups in the Boulder community
  • Debriefing of traumatic events
  • Rituals, prayers and spiritual practices 
  • A daily silent mindfulness meditation from noon to 12:20 (M-F) in the Foothills chapel.
  • Staff support and care

Chaplains provide spiritual care as an integral part of the health care team. Spiritual care is available on an on-call basis 24 hours/day. Please contact Spiritual Care at 303-415-7811 if you would like to make a request to see a chaplain.
