How We Can Help

Our Chaplains are here to help you with a variety of challenges.  Whether you need someone to sit quietly with you or assist with spiritual needs, we are here to help in many ways:

  • If you are struggling with the meaning of your illness.
  • If you have concerns with spiritual issues outside of illness.
  • If you are wrestling with difficult treatment choices.
  • If you would like to request a religious ritual specific to your tradition.
  • If you desire to express anxiety or fear or to confide in a "safe" person.
  • If you have received bad news.
  • If you are far from home and would like support.
  • If you are anticipating surgery.
  • If you would like someone to pray with you or bless you.
  • If you are grieving a loss.

Chapels

Our Chapels are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week for meditation and spiritual reflection. In recognition of the importance of ministering to your spiritual and physical needs, our hospitals have established a community chaplaincy corps consisting of several pastors/ministers from the community.

Healing Gardens

We also invite you to visit the Healing Gardens at Dunklau Gardens at Methodist Fremont Health, Methodist Hospital, Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital and Methodist Women's Hospital.
