    In keeping with the Dignity Health core values, the Chaplain's primary role is to provide spiritual care to patients, families, hospital personnel and medical staff by assisting them to integrate the experience of illness, trauma and loss with their own religious beliefs, and spiritual values and convictions. The chaplain acts as a resource and liaison with physicians, patient/families and the Ethics Committee in addressing ethical issues regarding treatment decisions. The chaplain works closely with community clergy (visiting clergy), acting as a contact between hospital and parish communities to ensure continuity of pastoral care.
