Clinics and Departments
Directory of Services
The chaplains at Children's Hospitals and Clinics are here to support the special spiritual needs of patients and families. The faith and spiritual practices of each family can be a source of hope, healing, and comfort during a hospital stay. Chaplains, who specialize in pediatric hospital ministry, visit persons from all faith traditions. They also can facilitate connections with home clergy and faith community or with religious resources locally that match an individual’s own faith and spiritual practice.
