Chaplain Services is available during your hospital stay by your personal clergy, or if you choose, by an associate staff chaplain through the Chaplain Services Department. The free service is available 24/7 for patients and families from all religious backgrounds.
Services are delivered by on-site Chaplains Richard Abel and Russ Steele. Associate Chaplains Tony Fink, Marlowe Potter and Dewayne Fritzinger help with night, weekend and holiday coverage, and fill in on the weekdays as needed. Kathy Blair provides chaplain services for Hospice and Chaplain Russ Steele facilitates a Grief Support Group.
Our team approach addresses all aspects of your emotional and spiritual needs. The most common requests we receive are related to anxiety, bad news, births, complaints, death, depression, ethical issues, mediation, spiritual crises and grief support.
