    Our full-time chaplains are board certified by the Association of Professional Chaplains (or in the process of being certified).

    This means that each one of our professional staff chaplains has a minimum of:

    • An undergraduate degree from an accredited college, and a Master of Divinity (3 year) degree from an accredited seminary
    • Is ordained, licensed, commissioned and endorsed by a particular faith group
    • Has completed at least four units of Clinical Pastoral Education (1600 hours of clinical training) to be a Chaplain in a healthcare setting
    • Has demonstrated competency in thirty-three standards of care by a professional committee of peers

    We are here to provide emotional and spiritual care for people of all faiths and those who have no faith.
