This webinar will applaud our efforts at bedside spiritual care while stretching us to think about how this ministry is translated, valued and understood in our executive boardrooms.

The presenter will draw from these sources:

1. Professional experiences from founding a best-practice 10-year chaplaincy service line starting from an army of one to a cadre of 20 chaplains
2. Fresh lessons learned as a new corporate chaplain leader administering a Level 1 and Level 2 Trauma quaternary system that spans two campuses with four hospital centers
3. Survey results from hospital administrators serving in the C-Suite of a 365-bed tertiary care community medical center

Ultimately, this webinar will profit us by reminding us of what we may have forgotten about those steering the organizations we serve. We will hear passionate voices from those in the C-Suite who face pressures just like our own hospital administrators. What makes this webinar unique is that we will "eavesdrop" on a Q&A session within the context of discussing chaplaincy services by those who strive to balance mission and margin. These stewards of institutions entrusted with the health care of communities' bodies, minds and spirits speak from the non-sectarian side of the health care street. Let us glean wisdom from their raw unfiltered words because we can be faithful to our calling, without selling our souls, while helping improve outcomes through alignment of services and strategic interdependent relationships.

Learning Objectives

As a result of this educational opportunity, participants will:

1. Understand and appreciate health care executives' needs, and their views on mission and margin.
2. Gain strategic tactics to present and align chaplaincy as a value-added service line with direct bottom-line impacts.
3. Become familiar with qualitative research from a five-question survey from C-Suite health care administrators giving voice to their passion and compassion.

Who should attend: All who strive for faithfulness and success in serving the spiritual and emotional needs of their organization from bedside care to boardroom consultation.
