Offering Spiritual and Emotional Support

A child’s illness and hospitalization can be one of the most difficult times for a family. The Department of Pastoral Care at Cincinnati Children's offers spiritual guidance, or simply emotional support, to people of all faiths who are struggling with a child's illness.

Our chaplaincy staff is trained to minister in this challenging environment, and has proven to be knowledgeable about the developmental and spiritual issues unique to children. Working as part of the pediatric healthcare team, our chaplains share the task of bringing wholeness and health to patients and families.
