Spiritual healing is an accepted practice at Carolinas HealthCare System Lincoln. We strive to meet patients where they are, aid in the process of healing through human conversation, offer guidance, be a calming presence and allow people to feel they are not alone in their journey.
In addition to our staff chaplain, the Pastoral Care Department utilizes volunteers through our volunteer chaplain program, comprised of local clergy whom have been trained to provide 24 hour on-call coverage.
