Spiritual Services

Your Spiritual Counselor may be your own affiliated clergy member from your specific religious preference or if you would like a clergy member to visit you during your hospital stay, please ask any member of your healthcare team.

Clergy services are provided by not only through Priests, Ministers, Rabbis and Monks, but through Deacons, Nuns, Parish Nurses and church laypersons.

The Clergy can provide you with spiritual support through prayer, emotional support and reassurance. They can advocate for you and participate in your treatment and/or discharge plans if requested.

Our Chapel is located on the ground level of the original building next to the elevator. The Chapel is open at all times. We provide a Prayer Intention Book, Loan Library and brochures for your reading pleasure.

The Greater Gardner Religious Council provides readings in the chapel to assist our patients during their hospitalization. We can offer additional resources such as CD Players & CD’s, some spiritual, some stress relaxation and some easy listening music; Prayer Shawls, Comforters; Hug & Prayer blankets etc. {Supplies may be limited as they are provided through donation}
