The Pastoral Care has made significant contributions to the service of the hospital. As reflected in its mission, the hospital is "committed to the service of man through quality care towards the attainment of the integral health needs of the total person, his body and soul".

As this institution envisions quality healthcare services to our patients, the Pastoral Health Care Team of the Cebu Doctor's University Hospital shares a vital role. Quality health care means providing integral health of the total person, the care of both body and soul. The team is composed of a hospital chaplain who is a Catholic priest and three sisters from the Living the Gospel Community (LGC), a Diocesan religious order of the Archdiocese of Cebu. The team's primary task is to provide care to the patients particularly for their spiritual needs. Its ultimate aim is to project Jesus Christ, the compassionate healer, through caring, sharing, comforting and offering emotional support not only to the patients but also to their families. For patients who are Christian Catholics, the team sees to it that they will receive the necessary sacraments concerning their condition - Holy Eucharist, Confession, and Holy Anointing. The team also does daily visits to patients, counseling, and prayers as means of reaching out to all clients regardless of race, color, and belief.
