Sacred heart Hospital places special emphasis on Pastoral Care as a healing ministry. We envisage an approach whereby patients attain holistic wellbeing and experience harmony with the Creator, with the self, with one another and with the environment.It is an established fact that healing is facilitated when the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of an individual work together in a holistic way towards a common goal. It has also been demonstrated that compassionate, patient and prayerful support brings about a powerful therapeutic and healing effect. The Pastoral Care Department achieves these objectives through counseling and prayer to all our patients, regardless of community and creed. Pastoral Care team visits patients daily and inquires about their wellbeing, making them feel that they are loved and cared for. The staff spent time with patients and pray for them. The team aims to provide psycho-social and spiritual support through counseling to patients as well as their families and help them to cope up with the stressful situations.
