Faith as a Resource for Patients and Families
The chaplains of the hospital are available to patients, families and friends from all religious faiths and to those with no affiliation.
Whether you have a religious background or not, we will offer you an attentive ear to listen to what you are going through and help explore how the illness of yourself or a loved one affects your life.
If you would like one of us to stop by your room for a visit, we would be happy to do so. You may ask your nurse to contact us or you may call our office directly on 16020.
Contacting Your Clergy
If desired, our chaplaincy office will contact your own church, parish or synagogue. We make this notification only with your permission. Please call us at 609.853.6020 (in-hospital extension 16020) if you would like this service.
Roman Catholic priests can be reached for response to urgent needs. Rabbis are available by request. A Hindu priest or an Imam also can be contacted on your behalf.
Communion for Roman Catholics
