Caring for the Whole Person

At Seton Medical Center Harker Heights, we are dedicated to providing exceptional care for the whole person.  We recognize
that our patients have emotional and spiritual needs as well as their physical needs.  The Department of Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care provides inclusive spiritual care for patients, families, and associates delivered with compassion and respect for human dignity.

About the Department of Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care:

The Department of Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care is led by a Board Certified Chaplain and supported by specially trained volunteer chaplains and Eucharistic ministers.  Chaplains are members of the interdisciplinary care team and serve on numerous committees, including the Ethics Committee.  Our chaplains are trained in Crisis Management and are able to facilitate during critical situations.  Through our network of leadership and volunteer chaplains, there is always someone on call to provide pastoral support.
