Overcoming cancer often requires a heroic amount of physical, emotional and spiritual strength. No one understands this better than Reverend Percy McCray and his dedicated staff in Pastoral Care and Social Services.
Every day, those who make up the department at CTCA at Midwestern Regional Medical Center—seven clergy persons, three social service workers and various volunteer community pastors—help people like you build a bridge from despair to hope.
As Rev. McCray says, “The goal of the department is to provide an ecumenical umbrella of spiritual support for patients, family members and staff whereby persons of any faith can be strengthened, motivated and inspired to combat cancer.”
In creating an environment conducive to healing and recovery, the department exists as a great source of comfort for patients and families.
Rev. McCray is a fully ordained minister and a member of the National Chaplain Association. He has been recognized as one of the “most influential African Americans in Lake County (IL)” by the People’s Voice newspaper, for his religious and leadership roles within the community.
