Our Chaplains are available 24/7 year round to patients, family, and staff to help deal with spiritual and emotional challenges often associated with medical events and crises. The chaplain’s role is to support you and your family spiritually and emotionally while in the hospital, regardless of faith or religious affiliation.
Our staff includes full-time chaplains, PRN chaplains, and CPE (clinical pastoral education) students.
