Chaplaincy

Spiritual health is important to patients. That’s why Parkview offers chaplain support around the clock. Patients and families have access to chaplains to discuss spiritual matters or concerns and provide spiritual resources.

A quiet chapel is located on the second floor of Parkview Regional Medical Center and on the second floor of Parkview Hospital Randallia, just above the main lobby. Each chapel is available for quiet reflection or meditation 24 hours a day.

Home Health and Hospice

Parkview Home Health and Hospice addresses the physical, emotional and spiritual needs for patients and families in the last months of an incurable disease.  The medically directed team of professionals and volunteers treats the whole person during the end stages of the illness and stays in contact with the family and caregivers following a loved one’s death.

Services include:

  • Traditional home care and hospice

  • Infusion

  • Respiratory therapy

  • Provision of medical equipment

These services may be provided in the patient’s home, in an extended-care facility or in cooperation with the local inpatient hospice facility.
