religious, spiritual and emotional support to patients, their families and hospital
staff members 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.

Our chaplains are clinically trained, ordained ministers who understand the special
needs of hospital patients, their families and hospital staff members. We provide
intensive pastoral care, respond to referrals, trauma and all crisis calls, conduct
patient religious assessments, provide end-of-life pastoral care to patients and
their families and conduct religious services.
Mission Services’ mantra, at all times is to serve the employees and community members

and Dependents) and the Coat Depot, our second year coat giveaway program!
