Spiritual Care & Education
Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital is committed to providing the finest spiritual care with healing and compassionate support, coupled with respect for the sanctity and dignity of human life. In all endeavors we will strive to treat everyone as a person of sacred worth and value, created by God.
The mission of the Spiritual Care and Values Integration Department is to cultivate an atmosphere of caring, healing, hope and reconciliation in which patients, family members and staff might experience the presence of God. The department is staffed by a full-time chaplain who is ordained, endorsed and certified and who offers pastoral support, sacramental ministry and spiritual guidance.
