When struggling with illness, one may feel more of a religious or spiritual impulse than under normal circumstances. Compassionate listening and prayer is available to you while you are in the hospital. Anyone, not only those who identify as religious or spiritual, can call for a chaplain's support, and they will listen with compassion as you talk through what matters most to you. If you or a loved one would like to see a chaplain or have help contacting a support person from your religious denomination, please ask a care team member to text the chaplain or call:
