Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care Services support the work of healthcare providers and staff by adding experiences of compassion, unconditional concern, and a spiritual presence to patients and families. We recognize that patients and families are stressed and we are committed to meeting your spiritual and emotional needs.

It is appropriate to call Pastoral Care if you or family members:

  • Request to speak with the chaplain or other clergy.
  • Request a religious rite or service, Bible, rosary or other devotional materials.
  • Express concern over death or the quality/meaning of life or are emotionally distressed by the death of a loved one.
  • Concerned about ethical, healthcare or religious decisions (DNR orders, withdrawal of support, advance directives, refusing treatment for religious reasons, etc.).
  • Experience difficulty adjusting to illness, injury or life changes.

Pastoral care services are available during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. by calling 607.547.3626 or pager 1306. For all routine and emergency after-hours pastoral care, please call 607.547.3456. A nurse may also facilitate contact during business and non-business hours.

A Chapel is located on the first floor of the Fieldstone Building, to the right of the main lobby. It is always open for prayer, meditation and contemplation.
