Spiritual Care - We Value its Importance
Mid-Columbia Medical Center recognizes the unique needs of each individual and the potential for spiritual care to enhance healing. Our Spiritual Care Department staff members and volunteers are available to offer a caring spiritual presence to patients and their families.
Staff members have received advanced education in spiritual care and are dedicated to being caring companions to others in times of crisis or life transitions.
The Labyrinth: Preserving the Mind Body Connection
As part of our commitment to caring for the spiritual needs of our patients, Mid-Columbia Medical Center is one of the few hospitals in the U.S. to have a labyrinth. Labyrinths are walking meditation paths. They wind inward to a center and back out again.
Where labyrinths ultimately lead is up to those who walk them. For many they are spiritual tools. Frequently, people experience feelings of profound peace, relaxation, empowerment and wholeness as they move along the paths.
