Spiritual Care and Chaplaincy

Spiritual Support

Spiritual care resources at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) include chaplaincy, a sanctuary at the SCCA outpatient clinic on Lake Union, and information on places of worship in the community.

Chaplaincy care is available at any stage of your treatment process for patients treated at the SCCA outpatient clinic, University of Washington Medical Center, and Seattle Children’s. 

SCCA chaplains provide spiritual care by listening attentively and participating with you as much as you need.  We honor your spiritual, cultural, and personal frames of reference and will speak with you in a supportive and inquiring manner, rather than imposing a particular perspective upon you. 

For more information or to speak with a chaplain, call (206) 288-1099 or e-mail pastoral@seattlecca.org. Your nurse, social worker, or other staff person can call for you as well.

Families with a child who is an inpatient at Seattle Children’s can call (206) 987-2000 and ask for a chaplain or contact the manager of chaplaincy at (206) 987-4363.

Places of worship in the Seattle area are listed in our Guide to Seattle
