The spiritual care staff of Women & Infants Hospital offers a listening and compassionate presence for patients and their families at any point during their hospital stay. Trained, multi-faith chaplains are available to offer spiritual support to people in times of illness and uncertainty.
Spiritual support services include one-on-one visits with patients and their families; baptisms, blessings, and prayers; bibles and other inspirational literature; daily communion/Eucharist and sacrament of the sick are available upon request.
Our interfaith chapel is located in the hospital's main building and is open 24 hours a day. It was created as a quiet and peaceful place for patients, families, friends and staff. There are a wide variety of religious and spiritual resources for all faiths available in the chapel.
Our Healing Garden, open 24 hours a day, is on the fourth floor of the hospital for patients and family members when you want a place of quiet and calm.
Interfaith gatherings for spiritual reflection and support are held in the chapel on the first Monday of every month (excluding holidays), 12-12:20 p.m. All are welcome.
We know that part of the healing process involves meeting your spiritual and emotional needs. Our pastoral care staff offers spiritual support and resources.
