  • Spiritual Care & Chaplains

    We recognize the central role of spirituality in mental, physical and emotional health. A chaplain acts as an ambassador, companion, concierge, navigator, mediator, etc. Their work highlights the elements of religion that run as an undercurrent to life's daily challenges.

    Chaplains serve as hosts for emotional, spiritual, moral support and everything in between. They are assigned to the private chapel in places such as hospitals, military bases, or prisons.

    Chaplains are available to assist patients and family members of any faith, including those who have left the path of religion. Our chaplains are here to listen, talk, pray, and to connect you with resources to encourage emotional and spiritual healing. Use the links at left to access online resources recommended by our Spiritual Care staff.

    Chaplains are available to provide support, prayer and counsel 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    Patients can contact a chaplain:

  • Planning for a Hospital Stay

    Planning Ahead

    Undergoing medical tests or treatment can be stressful and disruptive to your life, particularly if you are having a major procedure. There are some ways you can prepare in advance that may help you rest easier and worry less. If you will be staying in the hospital, or if your treatment has a longer recovery period, you may want to think about:

    • Special arrangements for children, pets & plants.
    • Suspending your newspaper service, milk and/or mail delivery.
    • Stocking up on necessities to eliminate a trip to the grocery store.
    • Making sure your car's gas tank is at least half-full.
    • Getting prescriptions filled.
    • Creating a "phone tree" so one person can conveniently update family and friends about your condition.
    • Organizing your household bills and pay some early, if you can.
    • Talking about your desires regarding treatment and care with your family.
    • Completing a set of Advance Directives.
    • Food and medicines the day before a procedure

    Preparations for procedures vary so please consult your pre-admission instructions. Be particularly attentive about whether you are supposed to take medications. Even over-the-counter medications, such as aspirin, may affect your ability to undergo a test or a procedure. If you have any questions, contact us.
