Spiritual Care

Mackenzie Health provides spiritual services to patients and families during their time at the hospital. See below for additional information on what we offer.

Mackenzie Health is pleased to offer Spiritual Care Services to help patients and their families discover a sense of hope and peace through the sacred in their lives; either through the rites and rituals of their faith traditions or through those principles and life experiences that give meaning and purpose to them. Our Multi-faith Chaplains are available to assist you during your stay at Mackenzie Health. They are able to contact the clergy and representatives of the various Faith communities in the Greater Toronto Area to visit with you. If you wish to receive visits from members of your faith community, please ask your nurse to update your electronic medical record to indicate your faith.

After hours your nurse can page the on-call Rabbi, Catholic Priest or Imam who will come to confer the Sacrament of the Sick and/or the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession).
