Memberships

Health Organization Membership

Health Ministry is a joint effort between faith communities and health care systems. This partnership is most evident when health care organizations, such as hospitals, provide financial support for the ongoing operation and development of faith community nursing. Such an arrangement opens up avenues of cooperation and collaboration that help reduce health care costs, facilitates the admission and discharge processes for faith community members, reduces unhealthy reliance on acute care facilities, and opens up opportunities for education, advocacy, and referral.

Current Health Organization Memberships include:


    Such partnerships benefit health care systems, the people who access this care, and faith community nurses who often serve as a bridge between the two. They also affirm the important contribution that the faith community makes to the healing process itself.
