CHAPLAINCY PROGRAM

The Chaplaincy program of WCH provides pastoral and spiritual care during your hospitalization.

Our chaplains are professional trained for this very special ministry and are here to offer support and comfort. The on-call clergy represent all denominations of faith.

Our chaplains offer you and your family encouragement and a listening ear during your hospital stay. We provide advice and consolation in times of crisis or grief, by relying on God's protection and healing presence.

You will be asked at your time of admission if you would like to receive a visit from a chaplain. Arrangements can be made for a chaplain of your faith to visit. Or, the chaplain will be glad to contact your own local minister or church, if you make that request. Visits can take place on the nursing floor, in a waiting room, or the emergency department. Our chaplains respond 24 hours a day.

A chapel is located just past the intersection for A-wing and B-wing, toward B-wing. It is open 24 hours for quiet reflection for you and your family.
