Our Mission

“Advancing the well-being of individuals and communities where healthcare meets the human spirit.”

Our mission is to provide spiritual care to the patients, families and staff of Stroger Cook County Hospital and The Ruth M. Rothstein CORE Center. Chaplains Micheal Smith and Matt Seeds are the Professional Chaplains serving at Stroger, in particular in the Trauma and Burn Units. Chaplain Jim Croegaert (shown here) is the Professional Chaplain seeing patients at the CORE Center of Cook County.

Each year, Bishop Anderson House educates and trains students from all over Chicagoland in the art of providing spiritual care on a volunteer basis. Our alumni work in their parishes, their communities, and in other organizations to support the spiritual needs of so many. Learn more about our program, or apply today!

Bishop Anderson is proud to provide self-care events for staff and patients throughout the Illinois Medical District. Learn more about what we do here.
