It’s important to respect the unique spiritual and cultural orientation of each patient and family member. We want to help you and your family receive the type of spiritual and emotional support you feel is needed during your hospitalization. Our pastoral staff, board certified chaplain, students-in-training, and trained volunteers, working from a multi-faith approach, are available to meet with you and/or help you find the support you desire.
You can contact our spiritual care staff directly by calling [904.627.2470] or by asking your nurse. An On-Call Chaplain is available 24 hours daily for emergency Spiritual Care needs and can be reached by contacting your nurse.
The Chaplain's office is located on the second floor of the hospital. The Chapel, located on the ground floor across from the Surgical Department, is available 24 hours a day for people of all faiths and backgrounds.
For after-hour emergencies request your nurse or the hospital operator to contact the Chaplain on-call.
This interdisciplinary committee offers guidance to families, providers and treatment teams who are trying to reach an agreement about the best way to care for a patient, helping to provide clarity in cases where difficult ethical issues arise. Consult the Medical Ethics committee when:
- The patient’s treatment goals are unclear.
- There is uncertainty surrounding the decision-making roles of the patient, family, providers and the treatment team.
- The patient, family, providers or the treatment team needs help resolving a conflict.
Request an ethics consult from your nurse.
