At Baptist Health South Florida, we offer Pastoral Care services out of our strong commitment to your emotional, spiritual and religious care.

Research has shown a clear relationship between spirituality and the process of healing. Our Pastoral Care chaplains, representing several religious faiths, provide you and your family support in your time of need, no matter where you are in your spiritual journey.

We are here to help you, no matter your background or faith. We can also connect and guide you to helpful resources within the community.
