Pastoral Care and Chapel

When you or your loved one are facing challenges, a few words of spiritual comfort can ease your anxieties and lift the heaviness in your heart. Available any time, any day, our pastoral-care team is here to serve you by lending a listening ear, providing spiritual counsel, and praying with or for you. We’re also happy to connect you with a leader from your own religious community. To speak with a chaplain, call 254-519-8344 or 254-618-2200.

We have a beautiful chapel, which is open to people of all faiths. The chapel is always open to you whenever you need a peaceful place to pray, meditate, or rest in a healing environment. All are welcome to join any of our hospital’s religious services, including:

  • Morning Prayer Service: Monday through Friday From 8:30 am to 8:45 am
  • Bible Study: Every Friday at Noon in the Women’s Center Conference Room
  • Week of Spiritual Renewal: Held Every Spring

We would like to join with you in prayer. Please let us know how we can pray for you by Submitting A Prayer Request.

Focus on your loved one, not parking. We’ve made the journey here as simple as possible so you can concentrate on the people you care for.

Free Hospital Parking

You don't have to worry about parking. At each of our facilities, you’ll find free parking (all day, every day) in front of the hospital’s main entrance. If you need help finding your car, call the operator by dialing 0.

Coming from out of town? Accommodations for visitors and relatives are available at nearby motels, which offer various facilities and rates.

Pastoral Care

A hospital stay can be an unexpected, anxious and a lonely time, not only for loved ones, but family and friends as well. AdventHealth Central Texas knows that your spiritual care is also an important part of the healing process. That’s why members of the Department of Pastoral Care are available to you and your loved ones during your time in the hospital, providing you with spiritual care and support.

Contact a Chaplain

Patients, their family members or friends can request a visit from a chaplain, and we are also available to assist clergy or other pastors coming to visit their congregants.
