At Lowell General Hospital, Spiritual Care is an integral part of Complete connected care. We believe that your spiritual health is as important as your physical, mental and emotional health, and indeed, good spiritual health supports physical healing. Spirituality encompasses your values, principles, beliefs (religious and otherwise), sense of purpose and meaning, your sense of place and connectedness to the world, and your emotional and relational resources, especially as they come into play when faced with significant changes or decisions in your life. Chaplains provide compassionate support to people of all religious traditions and those with non-religious belief systems. We attend to not only the spiritual, emotional, and religious needs of our patients, but also to the needs of their families, visitors, as well as our staff members.
