Our staff chaplain maintains a regular schedule from 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. In addition, a group of trained Pastoral Care Volunteers, representing diverse religious backgrounds, assist in providing pastoral care ministry on a 24/7/365 basis. Community clergy enhance this vital service for their congregations.
To inquire about Pastoral Care Services, you may call the chaplain at 770-736-2478. You can request a visit upon admission or by contacting the nursing staff. After hours and on weekends, contact the hospital operator to connect with the chaplain-on-call.
Our Chapel is located on the first floor and is always open for prayer and meditation. The beautiful stained glass windows provide a focal point for reflection. This peaceful, beautiful environment invites persons of all faiths to experience a sense of God’s creating, renewing and sustaining presence. Bibles and other spiritual support resources are available in the chapel and from the chaplain. Communion and sacramental opportunities are available at bedside upon request.
