Chaplain Services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A hospital chaplain can serve as a pastoral presence. Chaplains provide spiritual connections and can help patients make a connection with their individual faith. They also can provide emotional support for patients and their family members during difficult times.
A hospital chaplain can serve as a liaison between hospital staff and families during a crisis and can serve as a mediator during a difficult situation.
