VA Chaplains support patients and families by providing spiritual guidance and pastoral care to those who wish to receive it. Their services can help through difficult times such as an acute or chronic illness, or at the end of life. They also provide regular public worship services for hospitalized Veterans.

VA Chaplains are pastoral and health care specialists. They are aware of the spiritual needs which often arise from the anxieties, and fears that accompany illness and disabilities. Chaplains provide for the spiritual and emotional needs of the whole person in seeking health and peace of mind. Chaplains are sensitive to all of the religious and cultural backgrounds of patients to whom ministry is provided.
