Job Description:

If you enjoy unique opportunities and working in a culturally diverse community with striking New England scenery, then Hartford Hospital is for you! This facility is easily accessible to the major highways, a welcome convenience if you want to visit New York City or Boston. Our Pastoral Care Department consists of four talented chaplains, a wonderful administrative assistant and four hard working full time residents, as well as summer and extended programs of Level I CPE and supervisory education.

Since 1957, Hartford Hospital has had the distinction of conducting an ACPE CPE program for all levels of training. Our premier 600 + bed health care facility celebrates being Connecticut’s first nationally accredited 24/7 stroke center and is the northeast’s only national cancer institute (NCI) community cancer center program. Its Level One Trauma Center, which operates the only medical helicopter service in the State, represents our commitment to rapidly changing cutting edge technology as well as innovative and creative educational programs. An example of this is the hospital’s Integrative Therapies program which offers Guided imagery throughout the hospital, the inclusion of Spirituality and Art as a curriculum component and a community program for bereavement support. The department is well integrated with treatment teams in the hospital and provides 24 hour coverage to all traumas, cardiac and respiratory calls.

The ideal candidate will need a Masters of Divinity Degree; ordination or commissioning; faith group endorsement; and certification as an ACPE Associate Supervisor (ACPE Certified Supervisor). She/he will coordinate all levels of Clinical Pastoral Education training and programs offered at the hospital, including teaching, arranging for adjunct faculty, and providing individual and group supervision, as well as recruiting, coordinating and supervising volunteers for the department. In addition to serving on some hospital committees, this position is responsible for the CPE accreditation, with support of the Department Director. Interested applicants, please contact Rev.
