Planetree Component: Spirituality & Diversity

Spirituality & Diversity are among Enloe Medical Center patient-centered initiatives addressing the components of Planetree.

Enloe Medical Center has partnered with leaders of our local faith-based community to the meet the needs of patients, visitors and staff. When considering the Planetree criteria of Spirituality and Diversity, hospital and community spiritual leaders saw an opportunity to create a formal program to meet these diverse needs.

Spiritual Support Volunteers SSVs

The Spiritual Support Volunteers Program (SSV) became active in 2014. SSVs provide for the spiritual well-being of the patients, families and staff of Enloe Medical Center, regardless of their faith tradition or for those whose spirituality is experienced away from religious context.

SSV are an interfaith group of community members who visit with patients through on-site rounds or by faith-specific referrals. The program allows for spiritual support to be available around the clock, either on site or on call to help patients, family and staff cope with and understand the impact of personal beliefs in the medical setting. Requests for an SSV may be made by patients, families and staff by calling (530) 332-5064.

Getting Involved

Community members wishing to serve in a lay-chaplaincy-like role as well as local faith leaders and clergy who wish to be on our on call faith-specific list may do so through the SSV program. Inquiries can be directed to Enloe Volunteer Services.

Meditation Room

Enloe Medical Center has a Meditation Room furnished by a generous donation and open to all. It is a welcoming and inclusive non-denominational space with a large window that looks out onto a garden. This is a place of solace, peace, hope and refuge where expressions of grief and gratitude and healing conversations can occur.
