Valley Health Chaplaincy Services provides spiritual and emotional care for patients, their families, and hospital staff. The chaplains are clinical professionals who have special training to care for hospitalized patients of all faith traditions or no faith tradition.

  • You may feel lonely, confused, upset, afraid, or sad—we can offer emotional and spiritual support.
  • We listen if you want to talk.
  • We support you during grief or loss.
  • We support you when you’re facing healthcare decisions.
  • We are confidential and nonjudgmental.
  • We minister to people of all religions and cultures.
  • We pray with you, if you wish.
  • We can arrange for the sacraments.
  • You don’t have to be a member of a church or faith community to see a chaplain.

How do I request a Chaplain?

Ask any staff member to page 1000 for a chaplain, 24 hours a day.
