A chaplain is available to counsel you in time of crisis, provide support at the loss of a loved one, or listen when you feel scared, lonely or depressed.
A pastoral team of chaplains is on-call twenty-four hours every day who are available to support our patients' emotional and spiritual needs without discrimination based on race or ethnic background. Chaplains are also available for our patients' families if needed.
An on-call chaplain can assist in seeking information to help you understand your medical circumstances, can contact your own pastor, church leader or other care-giver to connect you with support from outside the hospital. The on-call chaplain also attends to your spiritual needs by responding to requests for prayer, confession, baptism, anointing and other sacraments as requested by patients, families, and hospital staff. The chaplains can also offer counsel and prayer for our patients' family members.
If you would like a visit from a chaplain, please tell your nurse. Our chapel is available to anyone who wishes to spend time there and is located on the main hall between OB and surgery waiting.
If you have questions about the Chaplain Program, please call 972-875-0900.
