Because our goal is to provide you with the best possible care during your stay in the hospital, it is our desire to not only give attention to your physical needs, but to make it possible for you to receive the spiritual care you may desire.
The Chaplains make daily rounds throughout the hospital, and are available to those who desire their company. If you would like to speak to a hospital Chaplain, please call extension 2137 or ask your nurse to make the request.
