Hospital counselors fill spiritual need at Stanford

San Jose Mercury News, December 31, 2007
A growing number of hospitals provide more than medical expertise. They provide an in-house team of chaplains to calm and support patients and their families. Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs and simply those in need of human support find counselors to buoy their spirits, help them cope with fear or confusion at why they, of all people, fell so ill. Stanford University Hospital retains five in-house spiritual counselors and more than 200 volunteer chaplains.
