The chaplains are ministers or lay ministers who are qualified through our chaplaincy training program to offer spiritual care to all people in the Hospital.  Their sensitivity to individual beliefs and knowledge of different religious practices enable these chaplains to meet people at the point of their need. A chaplain is assigned a rotation to make visits on a daily basis.  A chaplain is on call 24 hours a day.   A hospital representative can assist you in reaching a chaplain at any time.
