Pastoral Care

Regardless of your beliefs, our team of qualified, spiritual guides will help you stay positive and channel hope and faith. Each of our chaplains focuses on the spiritual healing and restoration of those in our care, including their friends and families. Chaplains are available 24 hours a day to listen, counsel, and comfort. Our dedication to providing extraordinary, compassionate care continues beyond the patient floors, operating rooms, and ERs. Wellness means healing all aspects of the body, mind, and spirit. Our campuses were built upon this foundation and it still guides the care we provide every day.

Through our Pastoral Care program, patients and guests find prayer can be a powerful factor in healing. Whether guiding prayer, sacrament, or meditation, our chaplains help fulfill our mission to extend the healing ministry of Christ to our community.

To request a chaplain, simply ask your nurse, or call Call863-402-3370.

While You Are Here and Even After You Leave,

We Are Here for You

Your only job is to rest and get well. Our job is to support your recovery in any way we can so that you can focus on what’s most important — getting back to your life and doing all the things that you love most. From refilling a prescription to explaining the ins and outs of your insurance coverage to answering questions about hospital amenities, whatever you need, we're here to help.

A hospital stay can bring many visits and services from multiple medical providers. We know it’s hard to plan ahead for an emergency hospital visit, but if you have a scheduled health care service that requires a hospital stay, we recommend contacting your anticipated health care practitioners within the hospital to confirm they participate with your insurance provider. You can also get information about billing practices and an estimate for your upcoming services ahead of time. This will help you avoid any unexpected challenges and fees.
