Posting Department Clinical Pastoral Education
Posting Department Description The Department of Spiritual Care and Care Advocacy works in harmony with the mission of YRMC to provide compassionate care for all people in the Medical Center whatever their age, faith or value system. Patients are the focus of all that we do, but their families and friends, volunteers, staff and physicians are also supported in their emotional and spiritual needs. Care Advocates endeavor to resolve all care concerns. Chaplains provide care through listening, spiritual counseling and debriefing, as needed. Chaplains respond to all referrals within 24 hours but may respond immediately under emergency circumstances. They are trained to assist with stress and the spiritual, social and emotional barriers to healing. They intervene in crises, assist patients in completing Advance Directives, offer hospitality through providing food to family and friends of patients in emergency situations and offer Tea for the Soul with hand blessings for staff. In addition, the Chaplains are at the scene of every death and serve as the primary interface with the Donor Network of Arizona for organ and tissue donation. They coordinate with the Medical Examiner's office and all local mortuaries and also maintain the official Death Log of the institution.
