Chapel & Pastoral Care
At St. Luke’s Medical Center, we believe that spiritual care is a vital part of the healing process and can help connect patients and their families to valuable sources of inner strength during times of illness and medical crisis. Our spiritual care program is available to people of all faiths and to those with no formal religious affiliation.
Our chaplain is available for prayer and counseling; to help families clarify ethical dilemmas about medical treatment plans and withdrawal of life support, to provide emotional and spiritual support for dying patients and their loved ones and to provide comfort to patients and families when there is a need.
St. Luke’s Medical Center has many volunteer chaplains representing a variety of faiths to care for our patients providing pastoral care, counseling and sacraments. If you would like to receive a visit from one of our hospital chaplains, please notify the patient’s nurse or doctor. Only hospital staff with direct knowledge of the patient’s condition can call. The church office staff will ask several questions to evaluate the patient’s needs and condition.
Our beautiful chapel is located on the first floor near the main lobby and open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for patients, visitors, and staff. The chapel also may be reserved for memorial services.
