St. Mary's Pastoral Care Services - An Important Dimension in Holistic Care
Pastoral Care Office
Members of the Pastoral Care Department provide an important dimension of holistic patient care. Chaplains are available to patients, families, visitors, employees, physicians and volunteers to promote physical and spiritual well-being.
To contact a Chaplain, patients may ask the nurse or dial "0" for an operator who will assist.
Chaplains are available for emergencies 24 hours daily. Routine referrals are normally addressed within 24 hours, during normal work hours. Chaplains respond to emergency and urgent referrals at any hour of the day.
Ministers of all faiths and denominations are welcome to visit and counsel patients who belong to their church, synagogue, mosque, etc. The Pastoral Care Office will help contact patients' ministers if desired.
