Learn More About Palliative Care & Support
In 1903 Dallas First Baptist Church Pastor George W. Truett envisioned a hospital to which “persons of faiths and those of none may come with confidence.” Baylor chaplains work to meet the spiritual needs of our diverse patients, families, visitors, and staff and keep Truett’s dream a reality.
Chaplains and students also teach and learn from one another about cultural and religious sensitivity. Baylor Chaplains receive special training and actively collaborate with ministers from a broad spectrum of faiths. They help people from every religious group get the spiritual and religious support they need.
Research shows that music, humor, art and relaxation techniques promote health and well being. The Healing Environment program complements medical treatment by alleviating symptoms through entertainment, music, massage and aesthetically pleasing sights and sounds. The program offers video and audiotapes, clowns, music performances, stress reduction therapy, a 24-hour relaxation TV channel, patient education brochures, art cart, aromatherapy, aquariums and murals to more than 3,200 patients each month.
