Pastoral Care

Care & Counseling When You Need it Most
Chaplains visit with patients and family members at the hospital and elsewhere providing spiritual care, counseling, and education to people of all faiths. Chaplains address the spiritual and emotional elements of patient care, crisis ministry, bereavement and grief support.

Services are offered for special occasions, such as weddings, memorial services, adoption and blessing ceremonies, and national observances. Communion and other religious observances may be requested through the chaplain’s office.

Pastoral Care supports healing environment programs that help soothe and care for patients such as newborn blessings and inspirational literature.

To speak to a chaplain, please contact your nurse or dial 469.487.3901.

The chapel is open to everyone at all times. The chapel is located on the first floor of the Professional Office Building 2.
