A Mission of Health and Healing – Mind, Body, Spirit
A hospital stay can be an unexpected, anxious and lonely time, not only for loved ones, but family and friends as well. Florida Hospital 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.
Why Call a Chaplain?
Chaplains are healthcare professionals who bring all the resources of spiritual and pastoral care to help our patients, their families and friends better cope with the challenges of a hospital visit. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide spiritual guidance through prayer, ritual, sacrament, or help our patients connect to their religious communities.
