Spiritual Care

Here to Help in Your Time of Need

It’s natural to feel many emotions if you or a loved one is sick, injured or otherwise in need of medical care. Our Pastoral Care Department provides spiritual care for patients, loved ones and our staff members.

Our hospital chaplains are available from 8 a.m. until midnight every day, and our on-call chaplains are available from midnight until 8 a.m. as requested by a member of our nursing administrative staff support team members. If you need a chaplain, we are here for you. Ask your nurse to call a chaplain for you, or call our office at 318-626-4078. In addition, you can call our Prayer Line at 318-626-AMEN (2636), and one of our staff chaplains will pray for your request.
