Pastoral Care Services
The Pastoral Care Department at Atrium Medical Center has different options for patients and their loved ones depending on the type of support they need.
There are many ways to serve the spiritual needs of patients and their loved ones. We offer several pastoral services:
- Our staff includes one full-time and one part-time chaplain, available in the hospital Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. In addition to being ordained clergy, the chaplains have also completed Clinical Pastoral Education.
- We provide an interfaith chapel in the hospital. This chapel is a quiet place to meditate or pray, and welcomes all faiths and belief systems. It also includes inspirational literature and confidential prayer cards.
- Our Pastoral Care Department is assisted by a group of clergy from the community. A volunteer chaplain is on call at all times and can respond to emergency situations, day or night.
