Premier Health’s HEAL program serves those who have experienced one of the most devastating things that can happen to a family — the loss of a child. HEAL stands for Help Endure a Loss, and its mission is to offer comfort, reassurance, and practical help to those who have suffered a loss of this magnitude.

HEAL team members — including registered nurses trained in bereavement support — help families deal with the many issues that accompany a miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal or childhood death.

All HEAL services are offered free of charge and are available for any family within the community that has experienced the death of a child.

The HEAL program works to provide emotional support while attending to the logistics that surround memorializing a child.

Coordination Of Arrangements

HEAL representatives work with funeral homes, cemeteries, and local clergy to help coordinate funeral and burial or cremation arrangements. If needed, financial assistance may be available for these services.

Liaisons Between Families And Physicians

HEAL staff members act as liaisons between families and physicians and can often help family members have a better understanding of medical terms and diagnoses surrounding the death. At the family’s request, HEAL can also provide clothing items, blankets, and a collection of special mementos, as well as photos and other personalized items.

Miscarriage Support

HEAL representatives help parents with miscarriages by providing educational information and support about this often unsupported type of loss. A dedicated location has been created in a local cemetery for babies lost through miscarriage.
