Inspired Health Group (IHG) is committed to care for the whole person: body, mind, & spirit. It is the belief of IHG’s healthcare professionals that wellness & ultimate wholeness occurs when the body, mind, & spirit are in harmony with one another. The diagnosis & treatment of physical challenges that patients face often carry with them significant & sometimes overwhelming stress & spiritual unrest. At such times, it is natural to look to others for support. Care of the Spirit is addressed through the Pastoral Care ministry which is offered by IHG through the Glory Center which is the spiritual arm of IHG. Pastoral care contributes to a holistic approach to addressing concerns raised by the patients & their families & enables them to respond to their spiritual & emotional needs.

Pastoral Care Ministry

Offered to patients of Inspired Health Group who:

  • have chronic illness
  • are struggling with grief & loss
  • are experiencing pain, fear, & depression regarding their health situations

The Pastoral Care Ministry is not meant to replace any Pastoral Care nor any particular church participation that the patient is involved in. This Care of the Spirit is intended to blend with the medical care received from IHG for the body & the mind, thereby promoting whole health & healing.
