Faith Community Health Ministry

Faith Community Health Ministry, affiliated with Carolinas HealthCare System, is located in the Greater Charlotte area, including Concord, NC. It is deeply rooted in the religious tradition of caring for ourselves and others. In fact, many hospitals were founded by religious orders. The concept of treating the whole person - mind, body and spirit - has a rich history within all major religions.

A Rich History of Caring

Faith Community Health Ministry provides healthcare and education in a religious setting and joins two places of health and healing: the house of worship and the medical environment. Faith Community Health Ministry links the roles of faith and spirituality with healthcare by establishing a connection through a health ministry team.

By appointing someone in your congregation to partner with an established health ministry program - whether they are part of the medical community or someone interested in whole person health - you are continuing the long-held tradition that faith and health are intertwined.
