Pastoral Care

Mission Statement

Recognizing the need for spiritual support as part of total patient care, the main objective of the Pastoral Care Service is to foster a compassionate presence, provide spiritual and emotional support and encourage hope.

Scope of Services

  • Serves as a liaison between the hospital and Interfaith Visiting Community Clergy, who are available to visit those patients from their own faith backgrounds upon request.
  • Provides special holiday prayer services for patients, families and staff.
  • Sustains a close relationship with dedicated young individuals, who participate in joint fundraising efforts that directly benefit patient comfort care. 
  • The Sautter Family and Elliott-Lewis Corp. Chapel is available to patients, families and staff for prayer and meditation.


The Pastoral Care office (C-213A) is located on the second floor of the Center Building and can be reached by calling 215-728-2944.
