The Board of Directors of Salem Memorial District Hospital recognizes the need to provide total patient care. The physical, emotional, and spiritual needs are synergistic in their effect. Conversely, the absence of help for any of these needs can drastically hamper the patient's recovery.
The Chaplaincy Program is an important asset in assisting both the physician and the hospital staff in achieving the goals of quality patient care. Chaplains represent the hospital in striving to meet the spiritual and emotional needs of the patient.
