Employee Spiritual Wellness

The UCI Patient Experience Spiritual Care team offers several remedies to our staff members in their time of need.

Prayer/meditation room

Located at Douglas Hospital near the main lobby, it is available 24 hours a day, seven days of the week. It is open to all faiths.

In this room, you will find:

  • Books, such as the Holy Bible, Holy Koran, Mormon Book of Life and books for meditation (currently unavailable)
  • Prayer rugs and scarves (located in the cabinet drawer)
  • Prayer request box (located above the cabinet). Our chaplains pray the prayer requests daily at 11:30 a.m.

Chaplain support

Whether it is the comfort of a listening ear, prayer, counsel, blessing, communion, grief support or crisis support, our chaplains are here to listen, understand, and support you.

Staff members may request of our chaplains to:

  • Send weekly meditations, words of encouragement, or prayers by email.
  • Host a Tea for the Soul, which is used for debriefing and counsel at a difficult time of loss or grief
  • Write cards of encouragement, including recognition of celebrations and during difficult times
