Pastoral Care and Education
At NYU Winthrop Hospital, our motto "Your Health Means Everything" includes spiritual and emotional wellbeing, as well as the physical aspects of healing. The Pastoral Care and Education Department offers healing ministry, spiritual support and bereavement counseling 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We make every effort to provide you and your family with the support and resources you need — to be encouraged and to make meaning of your circumstances — during your stay with us. Our goal is to infuse your patient experience with affirmation and hope.
The Pastoral Care and Education Department at NYU Winthrop Hospital is a satellite of HealthCare Chaplaincy Network. HealthCare Chaplaincy Network™ (HCCN), founded in 1961, is a global healthcare nonprofit organization that offers spiritual care-related information and resources, and professional chaplaincy services in hospitals, other healthcare settings, and online. Its mission is to advance the integration of spiritual care in healthcare through clinical practice, research and education to improve patient experience and satisfaction and to help people faced with illness and grief find comfort and meaning — whoever they are, whatever they believe, wherever they are.
