Spiritual Care

Spiritual Care

During your hospital stay, our chaplains can be a resource to help navigate life changes and support emotional and spiritual wellness. We are respectful of all faith traditions and personal beliefs. We regard various spiritual and religious symbols as representatives of positive energy, faith, and hope. Trained in inter-faith care, our chaplains care for the human spirit. They offer listening, words, prayer, actions, spiritual groups and worship help to you to access peace or a divine presence in a time of change or distress.

A chaplain is available to provide spiritual and emotional support to inpatients and families during the day Monday through Friday and is on call 24 hours/7 days a week to respond to emergencies, crises and urgent spiritual care needs. A chaplain will visit every patient/family at Hospital for Special Care who requests it. At the request of a patient or family member, the chaplain can also contact the patient’s priest, pastor, rabbi, or faith community leader for them. To request a visit, call 860-827-4764.
