Pastoral Care Services

Through our Pastoral Care program, sensitive and compassionate care is provided to patients and families of diverse spiritual and cultural backgrounds. We recognize that each person is unique and comprised of body, mind and spirit.

Our chaplain, a valued member of the health care team, works closely with local clergy to ensure that patients and family members receive spiritual/pastoral care that contributes to their health and healing.

There is a chaplain in the hospital Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., to respond to the pastoral/spiritual needs of patients and families. An on-call chaplain is available upon request in the evening, on holidays and during the weekend.

The Napier Chapel is located on the first floor of the main building and is open 24 hours a day. It is quiet space for prayer, meditation and reflection appropriate for persons of all faith traditions. There are written materials on display, which may be taken for use in the hospital or at home.

The Pastoral Care office can be reached by calling 203.694.8369. The chaplain is available by beeper at 860.279.2680.

The on-call chaplain can be reached by contacting the hospital switchboard, at 203.694.8200.
