On behalf of the board of directors of HealthCare Chaplaincy Network, our staff and our supporters ----  I am announcing the formation of the Spiritual Care Association.
 
The Spiritual Care Association (SCA) is the first multidisciplinary, international professional membership association of this expanse and magnitude for all types of spiritual care providers. It establishes for the first time evidence-based quality indicators, scope of practice, and a knowledge base for spiritual care in health care.
 
As health care providers emphasize the delivery of positive patient experience, the Spiritual Care Association has been established to lead the way to educate, certify, credential and advocate. Its goal is for more people in need, regardless of religion, beliefs, or cultural identification, to receive effective spiritual care in all types of institutional and community settings in the U.S. and internationally.
 
Simply put, SCA's vision is Making Spiritual Care a Priority.
 
I encourage you to find the text and the video recording of the entire formal announcement of the Spiritual Care Association at www.healthcarechaplaincy.org.

And please explore the SCA website at www.SpiritualCareAssociation.org.
I welcome your comments via email at comm@healthcarechaplaincy.org.
 
Sincerely,

Rev. Eric J. Hall
President & CEO
HealthCare Chaplaincy Network and Spiritual Care Association
