Rev. Melissa Strong, M.Div., APBCC, is the service leader for Spiritual Care Services and oversees a team of four staff chaplains and 11 contract chaplains at Methodist Hospital and Methodist Women’s Hospital. 

“At the heart of chaplaincy is meeting people where they are and walking with them through the ebbs and flows of life," she said. "It's a privilege to share sacred ground with patients and staff alike, recognizing the rawness of both joy and sorrow, creating space to just be present in the midst of each one’s journey.”
