Pastoral Services

Medical Center chaplains are available to talk with you and your family.

The chaplains can help you address spiritual and emotional issues you are facing and ways your faith can help you cope with illness. The chaplains are prepared to assist people of all faiths.

Representatives of many faiths routinely stop at the Medical Center to visit patients from their tradition.

Chaplain volunteers may ask if you would like the Medical Center to contact your local church or house of worship to arrange a visit by your own clergy member.

Or, if you prefer, you may request the Medical Center’s chaplain to visit you. Many pastoral services are available, including coordination of sacraments for Roman Catholics.

A chaplain can be reached by calling extension 8177 (or (717) 531-8177 from outside the Medical Center) or by calling the Medical Center’s operator at extension 8521 (or (717) 531-8521 from outside the Medical Center) to have a chaplain paged.

Each patient room should have a New Testament and Psalms provided by the Gideons. If these are not available or if you would like the sacred scripture from another tradition, please call extension 8177 (or (717) 531-8177 from outside the Medical Center).


Interfaith Chapel

The Interfaith Chapel, available for public worship and private prayer, is always open. It is located on the first floor of the Medical Center near the main east entrance.

A service of prayer and hope for all faith traditions is offered every Wednesday at noon.
