We Provide Hospitals with Chaplains
Hospital Chaplains offer pastoral, spiritual, and religious care to those within the DHB community in accordance with the Te Whare Tapa Wha model of health. Chaplains listen and provide service to all people regardless of their religious denomination, faith orientation, belief system, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.
For many, being a Hospital Chaplain is a calling, and they approach it with passion, reverence, and insight.
We are proud to be supported by the Ministry of Health, Churches, Donors, and Local Committees as we work alongside the DHBs to ensure our Chaplains are held to a high standard of professionalism.
Throughout the seasons of life, ICHC is ready to assist through inclusion, compassion, hope and care.
