Wellness goes beyond medical care, whether you are spending a single night at Rush Oak Park Hospital or being admitted for an extended stay. For many patients, your spiritual path forms a base from which physical healing may emerge. While physicians, nurses and other health care providers work on your body, a team under the direction of the Wheaton Franciscan Sisters is also available, regardless of your religious affiliation, to help you care for your spirit.
A Spiritual Care team member is assigned to each unit of Rush Oak Park Hospital and is available at all hours, but Rush Oak Park Hospital welcomes and encourages visits from clergy of all faiths.
Spiritual Care services include a chapel that is open 24 hours a day, counseling and support, Catholic Mass at 4 p.m. on Saturdays and sacramental ministry (including Holy Communion for Catholic patients).
