HealthCare Chaplaincy Network’s Wholeness of Life Gala is an annual event that gives voice to spiritual care. It brings our cause to the forefront while bringing together patients, family members, health care professionals, and others in the community who care about this aspect of whole-person care.
HCCN takes this opportunity to recognize deserving individuals who have made enormous strides on an everyday basis or throughout a lifetime in providing compassionate care to people in the throes of a health care crisis or with other needs. Our Community Honorees and/or Lifetime Achievement Honorees, and Patient Care Honorees accept this distinction at the event.
For HCCN, the Wholeness of Life Gala represents our single largest source of awareness-raising and revenue-raising, enabling us to continue our mission to advance the integration of spiritual care in health care through clinical practice, research and education in order to improve patient experience and patient satisfaction, and to help people faced with illness and grief find comfort and meaning—whoever they are, whatever they believe, wherever they are.
