Spiritual Care

At Anderson Hospital, our chaplains have the education, training, and experience to provide spiritual care to people of diverse cultures, values and belief systems. Their sensitivity to individual beliefs and traditions enables them to meet people at their point of need. Our chaplains are available to provide emotional and spiritual support to patients and their families, including: crisis care and grief support counseling for families and staff; end-of-life support; assistance with making Advance Directives (Living Will and Health Care Power of Attorney); and information about the Living Will Registry.

A chaplain is available daily. If you or a guest would like to speak with a chaplain, you may arrange this through your nurse or by dialing “0” on your telephone and asking the operator. During evening and nighttime hours, hospital operators will assist you in contacting the on-call chaplain. 

A holistic approach to your health and wellness is an essential factor when it comes to healing. If you need a place to retreat, we encourage you and your visitors to relax and rejuvenate your spirit in our chapel. The chapel is located on the main level, just off of the hospital lobby. 

Our chapel is open at all times for prayer and meditation. Weekly liturgical and sacramental ministries are also observed. For a schedule of services, please call “0” on your telephone. Holy Communion is available daily through the commitment of Eucharistic volunteers. Protestant Communion is available upon request.
