Pastoral Care

Spirituality demonstrates that people are not merely physical bodies that require mechanical care. We are complex entities made with physical, emotional, and spiritual sides. Medical care seeks to treat and concern itself with a patient’s corporeal dilemma. Pastoral Care Chaplains seek to attend to the emotional and spiritual health by incorporating care through the use of each patient’s own traditional religious practices, beliefs, and values that make up their individual religious faith.

The Pastoral Care department can be reached by dialing zero and asking the attendant to page the On-Call Chaplain. Pastoral care is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Pastoral care is intended to be available for both patients and staff. Compassionate care for the dying, help with suffering, assistance with an emergency need, guidance and support with ethical decision making, comfort for the bereaved, counseling and referrals, and memorial services for families and staff are but a few of the services available.

For many of our patients, sacramental ministry is a crucial aspect of regaining health. Catholic patients may request the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Holy Communion, and Anointing of the Sick. The spiritual care staff will serve patients of other traditions or help them to obtain sacraments from their own clergy.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Chapel is located on the hospital's first floor.
