Blessing of HandsRecognizing the sacred work of nurses, physicians on the medical staff, volunteers and all employees in all areas of hospital life, chaplains honor the many vocational gifts of our staff through an annual ritual known as The Blessing of Hands.
ChapelsAll Texas Health hospitals offer a quiet space for stillness, reflection and prayer. It is our hope that these sacred spaces will provide peace and serenity for all who enter.
ChimesIn many faith traditions, chimes and bells are an invitation to pause for a moment from daily tasks to say a brief prayer or to remember our deeper intentions for the day. You may hear the meditation chimes if you are visiting one of our hospitals.
End of Life CarePalliative care - special care for patients living with advanced serious illnesses or life-threatening conditions – is available at Texas Health hospitals. Palliative care also focuses on caring for family members who are facing difficult medical decisions with their loved one. Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth hosted the first dedicated palliative care inpatient unit in North Texas. Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital was the first hospital in the area to open an inpatient hospice unit. Hospice care is focused on enhancing the comfort and quality of life of people who are terminally ill.
Final SaluteTexas Health offers the Final Salute program to honor veterans who die at our hospitals. Final Salute provides hospital employees a way to show respect to the veteran and family by standing at attention as the family escorts the veteran’s body toward transport to the funeral home.
Meditation GardensRecognizing the calming capacities of nature, many of our campuses provide beautiful gardens spaces where you can find a few moments of peace and restoration.
