Spiritual Counseling for Patients of All Faith at Good Samaritan
Hospitalization can be full of uncertainty. It can be hard to navigate
these times and the importance of a strong support system cannot be overstated.
Because personal faith for many people is an important part of that support
system, Good Samaritan ensures an environment that makes patients and
family members feel comfortable practicing their faith. The Chaplain at
Good Samaritan is here to offer services that help care for your spiritual
needs and to help promote wholeness and healing. Our Chaplain is available
to support patients and families as well as hospital staff.
We want to work as a support system that works with you and your faith
to find strength, peace, and hope. With respect to individual religious
and cultural beliefs, we hope to promote healing and provide a safe place
for practicing your faith.
Everyone is welcome to attend the noon prayer every Thursday at 12 p.m.
at the Chapel located in the Health Pavilion. While you are in the hospital,
you can also call to hear the daily scripture reading by calling 3350
from your room.
Notifying Your Congregation
If you have a personal faith or belong to a local congregation or faith
group, we encourage you to contact them directly to inform them of your
hospitalization, or we are happy to work with them as well. Your own minister
is welcome and encouraged to visit you at the hospital and conduct faith
practices with you. If requested, our Chaplain will contact your congregation
and ensure they are aware of your hospitalization at Good Samaritan. To
request these services, simply ask the nursing staff to request a visit
from the Chaplain.
The Chapel is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is located on the
first floor of the Health Pavilion next to Starbucks. If you have a prayer
request please write the request in the book near the Chapel door. All
prayers included in the book are prayed for during the Thursday noon prayer service.
