Delta County Memorial Hospital Volunteer Chaplains

In partnership with area clergy, Delta County Memorial Hospital has created an on-call Chaplain program. This hospital is dedicated to providing the community with consistently high quality health care, we also felt is important to offer spiritual care as a valued added service.

Volunteer Chaplains have a weekly call rotation and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This service is available to patients and family members.

The goal is to first contact the patient's own clergy or pastor if the need arises; if they are not available then the Chaplain on-call will be contacted.

If you wish pastoral care and do not have someone available, please tell your nurse or contact the case managers at 874-2253.

During a time of illness, patients often feel frightened, discouraged, bewildered or emotionally drained.

In patients' hearts they may be troubled and asking:

"Why is this happening to me?"

"Where is God in all of this pain and suffering?"

"What can I hope for now?"

"Who can I turn to?"

Volunteer Chaplains are Available:

To pray

To offer support to patients and their family members
