Keeping the Promise of Hoag Spiritual Life

The spiritual dimension plays an integral role in the well-being of patients. Many researchers have observed that certain beliefs, attitudes and practices associated with being a spiritual person positively influence health. Qualities like faith, hope and forgiveness, and the use of social support and prayer, have a noticeable effect on healing. Hoag is committed to extending its leadership to Pastoral Care.


Philanthropy is the key to sustain and grow this important service.
