We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
Certainly there are physical challenges posed by an unexpected diagnosis or a lengthy stay in the hospital. But patients and their loved ones can also face spiritual crises.
“It’s a roller coaster,” says Rev. Aidan Lacy, former director of pastoral care at St. Mary’s Medical Center. “With a 3-year-old, for instance, if the patient is having a good day, the family is having a good day. And if she’s not, then the family is not.”
At St. Mary’s, we recognize all faiths and belief systems. Patients and their families will find a small meditation chapel on the first floor of the hospital near the Interfaith Elevators. The chapel is open on a 24-hour basis.
A Catholic Mass is held in the Old Convent Chapel on the St. Mary's campus at noon Monday-Friday.
Our chaplains are available anytime to offer their spiritual guidance to you and your family. Feel free to contact our full-time pastoral staff at (561) 882-6343.
Being sick takes an emotional toll. It’s important that you have a strong support group. The love of friends and family members will rarely be more cherished than when you are in the hospital. But sometimes we also need spiritual support. Our pastoral care services are here to fulfill that need. By respecting all beliefs and faiths, our pastoral activities are designed to be inclusive and provide all religious rites and spiritual services for members of our community.
All of our Chaplains are professionals. Their only desire is to meet the needs of those patients that request these spiritual services. They are trained to reach across different faiths while respecting all beliefs. Their goal is to provide assistance in activities for grief counseling, spiritual assessment and crisis intervention.
