Pastoral Care

Your spiritual and emotional well-being are important to us. Chaplains are available to visit, talk and/or pray with you. The Chapel, located off the main entrance lobby, is a place where people of all faiths can come for quiet reflection and personal prayer. Chaplains can be reached through the hospital operator or by calling (727) 734-6018. 

Your Hospital Chaplain

Your hospital chaplain has specialized education and training to serve the emotional, spiritual and religious needs of persons of all faith traditions, including those without specific affiliations. Through caring, compassion and non-judgmental listening, the chaplain provides spiritual care in a variety of situations at the hospital while respecting privacy and protecting confidentiality. Moreover, the chaplain offers comfort, strength and hope while respecting each person’s religious background and spiritual beliefs.
