HealthCare Chaplaincy in New York is a leader in the research, education and practice of multifaith spiritual care within health care and palliative care, and the only organization that does all three. HCC provides professional chaplaincy services—one of the most cost-effective resources to increase patient, family, and staff satisfaction—in major metro New York health care facilities. Since 1961 it has helped close to 6 million patients, loved ones and hospital staff find meaning and comfort – whatever their religion, beliefs, values or culture. Now in collaboration with the California State University Institute for Palliative Care it is providing the first online professional certificate course in palliative care for chaplains and other spiritual care providers. HCC is developing the National Center for Palliative Care Innovation, including an enhanced assisted living residence. Palliative care encompasses the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. It is appropriate when receiving treatment intended to cure, for when an illness is chronic, or near end of life. Palliative care relieves suffering and matches treatment to what the patient and family choose based on knowing and understanding what those choices are.
