Chaplains are available to:
- Offer counsel, conversation and emotional support.
- Provide spiritual counseling and administration of sacraments.
- Assist in calling your own clergy, if you wish.
Chaplains, who work along side physicians, nurses and others as part of the healing team, attend to the needs of the
human spirit. You need not belong to an organized church or congregation or even consider yourself religious to speak with a Chaplain.
Hospital Chaplains are professionally trained to serve as resources for all people in times of change, assisting you to reconnect with beliefs and values which may offer comfort and strength. Chaplains of particular faith groups are available as resources with ethical and/or specific religious concerns.
