Because Baptist Health is committed to providing holistic treatment of mind, body, and spirit, a chaplain is available 24 hours a day. In addition, WCH’s Religious Educator offers Godly Play stories which provide interactive spiritual growth opportunities at the bedside and in periodic group activities. On weekdays, as spiritual and emotional support is needed, please call (904) 202-4242. In evenings and on weekends, please ask your nurse to contact the on-call chaplain.
The Ellen Cavert Children’s Chapel [on the 4th floor of WCH] and Reid Memorial Chapel [on the 1st floor of the main hospital, next to the Gift Shop] are open at all times for prayer and meditation for people of all spiritual traditions. In the Reid Chapel an inter-denominational service is offered at 12 pm on Sundays and Catholic Mass is offered on weekdays at 12pm.
The Chaplain’s Office is located on the third floor of the Howard Building, Suite 308. Please call our Spiritual Care office at 202.4242 or ask your child’s nurse to request a visit if desired.
