The healing process takes place over time, through many processes and in many ways–and not all of them have to do with medicine or the body. At MetroSouth Medical Center, we're happy to assist with guidance of another type, whether by one of our staff or a clergy member of your choosing.
MetroSouth Medical Center provides spiritual care and emotional support for our patients and their families. Our chaplains and spiritual care team honor and respect all faith traditions. Spanish language spiritual care is also available. We serve our patients in many ways, including: sacramental ministry; support through prayer, listening and counseling; family support; assistance with Advanced Directives (Power of Attorney / Living Will for Health Care); communicating with a patient's faith community.
Due to confidentiality, we cannot call a patient's church, synagogue or mosque to inform them of an admission. However, patients and family members are free to notify their faith community.
The Spiritual Care office is open Monday-Friday, 6 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Saturday 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Chaplains can be contacted in emergency situations through the nursing staff. Our Chapel is located on the First Floor and is open 24 hours a day. A Meditation Room is located on the Ground Level. It is also available 24 hours a day.
For more information and to arrange clergy representation, please contact our hospital social worker at ext. 4668 or dial our main number at (708) 597-2000.
