Mountain View Hospital Pastoral Care Program

An outpouring of support from the Jefferson County Faith Community to help Mountain View Hospital fill a void was a very pleasant reward for hospital CEO Jeanine Gentry. Gentry said they placed a call to the faith community for volunteers to serve patients, visitors and caregivers on a rotating basis. “We had an overwhelming response from them, that they are very interested and committed to being here regularly here for our patients, and helping them with the things they are going through." Gentry says the faith leaders spent five hours of training with the Mountain View hospital staff, to learn about patient privacy and treatment protocol.  She adds that the hospital is dedicated to treating the whole patient and having spiritual leaders in the hospital or on call just completes the treatment.
