Bereavement Programs

Care for Those Suffering Loss

Losing a loved one is a challenging and emotional time. At Valley Baptist Medical Center, we offer support to begin the process of moving forward.

Support Groups

No support group will be able to take away the hurt and sorrow, nor will they be able to magically end the grieving. Support groups will, however, help you understand your emotions and loss and meet others who have had similar experiences. From them, you can learn what helped them through their toughest moments.

We offer a bereavement support group that helps you and your family adjust to life after losing your loved one. Should you need support further down the road, we offer the free Safe Haven support group. Sessions are held at Valley Baptist Medical Center—Harlingen in the East Tower Meditation Room on the second Thursday of every month at 10 a.m. For more information, call Chaplain Chris Hall at (956) 357-3330.

Spiritual Services

Valley Baptist chaplains minister to people of all faiths. We respect all religious traditions and are trained to attend to the needs of patients and their families in crisis, in times of spiritual distress or celebration.

Patients and families may choose to call on chaplains 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Turn to them for guidance and comfort by calling (956) 389-1194.

We can also assist you in contacting your own minister or faith group representative.
