Spiritual Care

Chaplains are clinically trained clergy/religious leaders who specialize in offering spiritual and emotional care and support to patients and their families. Chaplains listen to what is important to each person and remain sensitive to differences in culture, religion and lifestyles. Mott chaplains represent a variety of religions and faith traditions.
