Support for Body, Mind and Spirit
At St. Mary Medical Center, we believe that the spiritual dimension of each person is of prime importance, and key in meeting the healthcare needs of the whole person - body, mind and spirit. Spiritual Care Services provides spiritual care to patients, their families, and caregivers, and promotes spirituality in the lives of co-workers and the organization.
Warmth, compassion and genuine concern for each individual is a hallmark of our Spiritual Healthcare team.
The St. Mary Chapel and the Spiritual Care Services office is located on the first floor of the hospital in the West Wing. The Chapel is open daily from 6:00 am until 8:00 pm.
Sundays: 10:00 am
Weekdays: 11:30 am
A daily morning prayer can be heard over the public address system at 8:30 a.m.
If a patient would like a visit from a member of our Spiritual Care Services team, they may call extension 3675 at anytime. For emergencies, please have the nurse call or dial "O" for the operator, who will page a Chaplain.
Spiritual Care Services can be contacted from outside the hospital at (562) 491-9675.
