Advance Healthcare Directives

Choosing treatments to prolong your life and accepting or declining medical care are both very personal decisions—and you have the right to make them. However, if you're unable to voice these choices yourself (for example, if you're unconscious), it's vital that you make your wishes known to your family and your doctors. The best way to do that is by completing an advance healthcare directive.

Consult with your care team, your spiritual advisor (or one of our chaplains) and those closest to you. They will assist you in completing an advance healthcare directive so that your medical team and your loved ones can honor your healthcare decisions.

Meet Our Team

Our dedicated chaplains are here to support, comfort and assist with your spiritual and emotional needs.
