Our Chaplains are here for you. Whether you are religious, spiritual, agnostic, or atheist. Our Chaplains are trained to support people of many different faiths and people of no faith.
A Chaplain Visit: What to expect
Our chaplains are here to offer you emotional and spiritual support. Soon after you contact us, you will receive a visit from a member of our spiritual care team. You will meet a trained chaplain who’s only agenda is to listen and offer compassionate support. Expect a visit from someone who is trained to support you and be present with whatever is on your heart. Sometimes chaplains will offer relaxing breathing exercises, guided meditation, or prayer, but only if that is something that feels supportive for you. We are here because we know the hospital can be a hard place to be and sometimes having a caring presence can make it a little bit easier.
Our Prayer and Meditation Room
Our Prayer and Meditation room is available for use from 5am-11pm. The Prayer and Meditation room is located on the second floor of Building 5. Right around the corner from the cafeteria. Prayer rugs are available for Muslim visitors. Please knock on office 2C5, just next to the prayer and meditation room, or call *68500 to request a prayer rug be brought to you.
