Spiritual Care

During crises or major life changes, you may need to rely on your spiritual and religious beliefs for guidance.

At MU Health Care, we believe total patient care means caring for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our patients. The specially trained members of the Spiritual Care staff provide spiritual assistance no matter your beliefs or religion.
