You don't have to bear the pain and stress of your condition or that of a loved one alone. Rex offers several pastoral care options to help you in your time of need.
Pastoral Care Services provides an interfaith ministry of pastoral care and support to the patients, family members, visitors, and staff of Rex Healthcare. We seek to respond to the spiritual and emotional needs of persons living with the experience of illness and hospitalization while respecting their own beliefs and traditions. We believe the spiritual and emotional parts of living with illness and its meaning are vitally important for the lives and relationship of persons.
Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the Chapel is located on the second floor between the main lobby and Admitting/Discharge. The Chapel can be reserved for special services.
Chaplains are available to patients and families for support related to the impact of hospitalization, illness, grief and other issues. You can meet with the chaplain assigned to your clinical area, have your nurse page the chaplain, or call Pastoral Care office at 784 -3371 to request a visit. A chaplain is available 24 hours a day.
