Bereavement/Hope Through Healing Program
The death of a family member, friend, or newborn can bring about many difficult emotions and unanswered questions.
Should you experience such a loss at our hospital, please know you are not alone. Hope Through Healing is designed to help you work through the bereavement process.
In Hope Through Healing, you will receive a series of special mailings to help you understand the various stages of grief you will experience. You will also have access to our team of specially trained clergy—with a wide range of faith backgrounds—for comfort and support.

Healthcare professionals, you put your hearts on the line everyday, and sometimes, the rigors of this noble profession can leave you spiritually drained. Occasionally, circumstances arise that are especially difficult.
Our Pastoral Care staff is here for you, too.
- Our chaplains visit each hospital unit on a daily basis.
- Our specially trained debriefing team helps staff members who care for traumatized patients.
- Through our Angel Tree program, hospital staff help make the holidays brighter for their peers and coworkers.
When you need encouragement, hope or just someone to listen, call Pastoral Care at (270) 417-2100 or email us your concern.
New Patient Visits
As a new patient at Owensboro Health, you can expect a visit from one of our pastoral care volunteers, who will confirm your religious affiliation.
This is an important step, as it helps us to coordinate your spiritual care with churches and ministers with whom you are already affiliated.
Also, Eucharist ministers take communion to all in-house Catholic patients. If you do not have a religious affiliation or would rather not share it, please tell our volunteers.
Prayer and Religious Services
We offer prayer, scripture reading, and religious services, and we can meet sacramental needs as well.
