We offer CaringBridge, free of charge, for our patients while they are at one of our sites. A CaringBridge site offers many ways for people to stay connected with loved ones back home and elsewhere during any type of health event. It can be created wherever a patient or family member has internet access. Patients and their families can post messages, updates and pictures, and loved ones can respond with messages of support and encouragement. The service is confidential, secure and private and is accessible only to individuals selected by the patient or loved one. Users have access to multiple privacy settings and can be assured that personal data is protected and will not be sold.
To set up a CaringBridge site, patients can visit the following page: caringbridge.org/createwebsite.
Chaplain ServicesChaplains are available to provide services to our patients and visitors. Visit our Chaplain Services page for more information.
